The table shows total delinquent property taxes, by city, for calendar year 2005. It includes all property taxes reported as unpaid in calendar year 2005, including taxes that became delinquent in preceding years which were still unpaid in 2005.

Three categories of delinquent taxes are presented: tangible personal property; all real property plus public utility personal property (delinquencies for real and public utility personal property taxes are not separated); and special assessments. The actual amounts of the delinquencies, and additional penalties and interest imposed on the delinquent taxes, are included in the table.

Real and public utility personal property delinquencies were approximately $574.8 million of the calendar year 2005 delinquencies while tangible personal property delinquencies amounted to $307.2 million. Special assessment delinquencies totaled $72.6 million.
