AUSTIN (KXAN) — If you owe back taxes, you may want to consider paying them because Travis County tax assessor-collector Bruce Elfant is coming for you.
The county has released the top 10 property offenders for 2016. These are business owners that haven’t returned phone calls, answered letters or paid their past due bills.
“I take no joy in this,” Elfant said. “However, I will not allow these property owners to fly under the radar and disrespect the thousands of county residents who do pay their property taxes.”
The following property owners received their bill in October of last year and didn’t make the Feb. 1 deadline this year:

Failure to pay could result in these properties being seized by the county.
The tax office reported collecting 98.9 percent of the property tax owed for 2016, which is up from last year. There is still $39 million uncollected.
NOTE: Property owners of commercial buildings may have tenants who are unaware of the delinquent tax bill. This list may change as owners come forward to make payments.
