  1. Brian, you are knowledgeable about real estate and I assume property taxes so I was wondering if you could educate me about what is going on with the council person whose property seams to always be in arrears.

What strategies are involved in protecting property that is in arrears and, other than being “broke,” what possible reason would someone have for not paying these taxes?
