BRYAN COUNTY TAX COMMISSIONER
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
Listed on this website are excel spreadsheets on the overbids that I have pertaining to the August 5, 2014, January 3 and July 5, 2017, and July 3, 2018 tax sales. We do not have any unclaimed overbids from years previous to 2014, nor for years 2015, 2016 or 2019. All of these funds have been claimed and disbursed.
As per Georgia law, all of the Defendants in FiFa and all security holders have been notified of these sales and overbids. I have sent copies of the title searches that were done on the parcels that were sold along with the taxes that were due, the amount of the bids and the amount of the overbids to my County Attorney; he instructs me as to the rightful owner of these funds. I disburse the funds accordingly.
There have been numerous asset recovery agencies that have requested this list. Therefore, there may arise numerous and conflicting claims for these funds. Please be aware that in the event of conflicting claims, those funds will to given to the Superior Court of Bryan County so a judge may decide who the appropriate owner may be. You will have to defend your or your client’s claim before the judge at your expense.
It is the policy of this office that all checks will be made out to the “owner” of the funds and not to any third party. Justification and proof of ownership of the excess funds must be provided for consideration.
If you have any questions concerning this matter, please call me at 912-653-3880.
