Owners of multiple properties in Luzerne County and elsewhere sometimes let real estate taxes slide on their less valuable holdings.
The delinquent properties won’t go to auction for 21 months, giving them time to figure out if they can or want to pay the taxes to keep them. The back taxes have no bearing on their freedom to sell or refinance other properties in good tax standing.
That’s changed with a new state law that quietly passed in November as part of an attempt to target slumlords and individuals and companies with financial means who neglect taxes on some properties.

Luzerne County property owners should check their records if they recently received lien notices tied to Wyoming Valley Levee fee nonpayment because the mailing included some who already paid.
Lien notices have been sent to 3,811 property owners in recent weeks, officials said.
Northeast Revenue Service LLC, which handles the fee collection, is issuing the warning because the company inherited shoddy records from its now-defunct predecessor for two of the years involved in the lien notices — 2010 and 2011, said Northeast Revenue representative John Rodgers.

John Rodgers, president of Northeast Revenue Service LLC, takes bids during the county back-tax auction at the Luzerne County Courthouse in Wilkes-Barre on Thursday morning.
An unusually high number of bidding wars jacked up prices at Thursday's popular Luzerne County back-tax auction.
“We never did this kind of business. I think it's unbelievable,” said John Rodgers, head of the county's tax claim operator, Northeast Revenue Service LLC.
Bidders snatched up 120 of the 223 listed properties, paying a combined $998,980.
In comparison, 109 properties out of 260 properties were purchased in last August's free-and-clear auction for $854,533.
Unlike Thursday's sale, the 2012 auction included a big-ticket property — the former Dominic's on the Lake restaurant at Harveys Lake, which sold for $220,000.
The highest valued property in Thursday's sale — the Keystone Garden Estates assisted-living facility in Larksville — was removed because the property owner paid $288,189 in taxes owed from 2007 through 2011.
Rodgers wasn't sure why bidding was livelier than usual Thursday but said more people seem interested in landing deals. A total 253 bidders registered.
“We attracted bidders from all over,” he said.
