Staff writerx

More than half of the $21,088.55 in personal property taxes being reported as delinquent in Marion County this week are owned by a single business.

Randon Production, an oil and gas production company formed in 2007 by Randy and Kathleen Svitak of rural Pilsen, owes $11,015.88 on 32 properties.

All other taxpayers combined owe $10,072.67 on 57 other properties.

The next largest personal property tax delinquency is $1,456.78, owed for two properties owned by Roger Williams of rural Florence.

A complete list of delinquent taxpayers appears in this week’s public notices in the Record’s Classified section.

Taxes were due in equal installments Dec. 20 and May 10. Interest accrues if taxes are not paid on time.

The total amount of delinquent personal property taxes this year is equivalent to 0.125 of a mill.

County residents who have not paid personal property taxes from 2020 or before soon will find themselves in court.

Deputy treasurer Tina Groening said Tuesday that warrants already have been drafted and a case soon will be filed.

Property owners were notified in February and March that their taxes were delinquent.
