DETROIT (AP) - Property owners in Detroit and Wayne County have been given a few more days to reach payment plans to avert tax foreclosure.

Chief Deputy Treasurer David Szymanski says Monday that staff will assist property owners through Thursday.

Szymanski said the office was “so busy” at the most recent deadline Monday that “it will take a few days to clear up the paperwork.”

The original deadline was March 31.

Foreclosure proceedings were started this year on about 75,000 properties with most being in Detroit. Through early May, taxes had been paid on about 20,000 with 24,000 others reaching payment plans.

Gov. Rick Snyder signed a bill this year that allows homeowners facing financial hardship to use a payment plan to pay off debts and avoid foreclosure.
