LUCAS COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Lucas County Treasurer Wade Kapszukiewicz has compiled a "dirty three dozen list" of property owners who he says are making no attempts to pay their property taxes.

Topping that list is the owner of the Riviera Maia apartments in West Toledo, the Kidz Real Estate Group based in Chicago. They owe $504,554. Next is the Ram Associates of Ohio, which owes $422,576.

Kapszukiewicz says considering his office makes every attempt to work with property owners to set up payment plans, those who refuse to pay their property taxes are basically cheating the community.

"It is an outrage," he said. "One of the things we can do is help shine the light on people like this who aren't meeting their obligations. This money goes to school children, to the zoo, the Metroparks, the library, the 911 system, the mental health board."

The next round of property tax bills will be mailed out next week, and will be due on July 31.
