62 still on tax arrears list

As the city sends out its 2014 property tax bills, there are still more than five dozen lots that have money owing from last year — and the year before.

The 62 properties left on the tax arrears list is down from the 220 or so that were listed at the start of the year, but a few big names still remain.

Shape Foods, the beleagured flaxseed processor in Brandon's east end, owes the largest amount — nearly $300,000 from 2013 and 2012. It has been perpetually behind on its tax bill since at least 2010 and narrowly avoided going up for auction with a down-to-the-wire payment last year.

Properties on the list face increasing fines and penalties as the year goes on, with the ultimate fate being a tax auction in October. That is rare, although two properties were auctioned off last year.

The second-biggest bill on the list is an oil-change facility at 18th Street and Rosser Avenue that owes more than $56,000, followed by a fitness facility at 10th Street and Park Avenue that owes nearly $31,000.

Sixteen more properties owe the city more than $10,000 apiece. The smallest amount owing is $712.65, on a strip of vacant land between Queen Elizabeth Park and Andrews Field.
