According to deputies, more than nine-hundred properties remain delinquent from 2010 and more than six-hundred properties are delinquent from 2009.

Deputies say there are some delinquent properties from 2008 and they are dealing with those first.

Deputies say deliquent accounts will be charged an additional two-hundred dollar service fee and a one percent interest per month on the tax amount due.

"Unfortunately when it comes down to sell date and they have not paid then we auction off the properties," said Thomas County Sheriff Public Information Officer Steve Jones.

The Thomas County public information officer says those who owe property taxes from 2010 still have a chance to avoid service fees.
