The association celebrated in S. Florida where networking, education and the NTLA Foundation took center stage
HOLLYWOOD, FL, USA, March 25, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Tax sale professionals including investors, lenders, tax foreclosure attorneys, government tax collectors-treasurers, servicers, title companies, secondary market traders, software and data providers, convened for three days to enjoy unrivaled education.
According to the NTLA research presented, 6.4 million tax bills were not paid on-time in 2019. Thirty States opted to sell these unpaid taxes to the private sector to recoup the $15.6 billion in delinquencies.
With the economic downturn caused by COVID-19, more States will turn to investors to recoup the budget shortfalls caused by the non-payment of property taxes. The private sector can extend the payment period or offer payment plans in many jurisdictions. The greatest benefit to delinquent taxpayers is when the tax penalty is “bid down” to a lower rate, directly benefitting homeowners in distress.
To save elderly or disabled homeowners from tax foreclosure The NTLA Foundation was formed. The conference was focused on supporting the financial needs of the Foundation to save vulnerable homeowners.
Brad Westover, NTLA Executive Director, and NTLA Foundation Founder said, “The conference was a resounding success with an emphasis to give back. The NTLA Board agreed to match 100% of the donations received…. It is a priority and we still could use more donations to support the demand.” To donate, visit NTLA Foundation.
The conference exceeded expectations as a top-shelf event that the NTLA delivers from year to year: a classy and warm venue, networking with industry peers, exceptional food, exclusive time with sponsors and exhibitors that provide leading products and services, unique keynote speakers, and more.
NTLA also announced what’s on the horizon for 2020. These include distance learning for candidates looking to earn, the Certified Tax Lien Professional (CTLP) credential; and, a Podcast series to cover a diverse mix of compelling and timely issues with subject matter experts.
Lastly, NTLA is offering one-day deep dive seminars called “Education Week” be held in Chicago, Cleveland, Phoenix, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Trenton (NJ), and West Palm Beach. The NTLA Fall Symposium will take place on October 13-15 at the Joseph Nashville Hotel.
