It keeps records of all taxing district levies (towns, cities, schools, etc.) tax collections and unpaid taxes.
The department takes judgments on unpaid property tax parcels, administers forfeiture proceedings for unpaid taxes, and uses revenue recapture as a collection method, according to statute.
