Losing home to tax sale

Post by Linag » Thu Jun 18, 2015 12:34 pm

Good morning. I am in great need for some kind of assistance, resource or possible housing counseling because I may lose my residence to an upcoming tax sale in the beginning of September for delinquent property taxes in McKean County, Pennsylvania. To make this short, I reside in my childhood home by myself after both parents passed away (my father more recent; December 2013). The property was left to me in the will, but it is still an estate due to a few issues requiring completion first.
My sole income is Social Security Disability which I've been receiving for over 5 years and I owe property taxes from 2012 to present costing over $2,000 a year. I contacted my local Tax Claim Bureau and the only option given is payment arrangements owing $580 in cash by September 5, 2014 to avoid sheriff sale along with 3 more payments every other month at the same amount.
I'll do whatever is necessary to avoid losing my house, but was hoping there were other options available because I have very limited income (SSD) and this is still an Estate. Please contact me if additional information is required for help or to advise in any way. Thanks in advance for your time and help regarding my issue.
