Does Your Land Bank Need Startup Revenue?  MRS Tax Lien Management Can Help.
Land banks are local governmental entities, not financial banking industry players. They fight neighborhood blight by helping communities obtain titles or manage vacant, abandoned properties that can carry years of unpaid property taxes. Usually after some form of restoration or demolition, land banks resell acquired properties to private owners. Placing a property back on the tax roll is one of many positive returns land banks provide. In Pennsylvania, a land bank can be created pursuant to Act 153. This Act, however, provides no funding source to operate a land bank. Possible funding sources could come from Community Development Block Grants, charitable donations or realignment of existing resources. What many counties and local communities don’t realize is they’re sitting on a long dormant asset that can be put to immediate use, like kick-starting your own land bank without a direct cash outlay from your current budget. Generating revenue from this asset (those unpaid property taxes) involves using a patented tax lien management program from Municipal Revenue Service (MRS).

Although not a land bank, or a tax collector, MRS works with public entities, helping Pennsylvania taxing districts convert unpaid property taxes into instant revenue. Every PA municipality is sitting on delinquent real estate taxes. If a PA municipality transferees those unpaid property taxes to the land bank, this now becomes an asset the land bank can use to create funding. The MRS program is then used to broker a deal for the sale of your delinquent tax liens, generating unrestricted revenue back to the land bank, to provide sustainability or to be simply used initially as revenue to offset its own startup costs. The No-Obligation Tax Lien Management Seminar from Municipal Revenue Service  MRS makes learning about tax lien management easy. To schedule a no-obligation educational seminar for your superintendent, business managers or school  board, call MRS today at 814-476-0400 and ask for Jeff Spaulding or Jim Geronimo. Visit our new, recently updated website at www.municipalrevenues.com to find out more. And remember: We’re not tax collectors.  Let’s talk tax lien management soon.
