FLEMING-NEON, Ky. (AP) - An eastern Kentucky town is considering selling delinquent tax debts to third-party collection agencies.

Fleming-Neon Mayor Susie Polis told The Mountain Eagle (http://bit.ly/19IYOr8 ) the city is serious about collecting the funds.

Polis says the outside collection agency could double or even triple the amount owed through assessment of court costs and other collection fees.

At a recent meeting of the Letcher County Fiscal Court, County Court Clerk Winston Meade warned county taxpayers who are delinquent not to allow their taxes to be sold to third party collectors and urged them to make arrangements to pay them. Meade stressed the lack of compassion the third party collectors have for the holders of the delinquent taxes they purchase.
