Georgetowners owe almost $1 million in back taxes

The District Office of Tax and Revenue auctioned off the tax liens on 2,717 properties last week (only 1,265 were actually sold). Of those 2,717 properties, 86 are in Georgetown. The combined back taxes owed on those properties is $919,401.79.

The average owed on each property was $10,690.72. The largest tax bill is owed for 1344 Wisconsin Ave., which housed Gala until it closed last year (which might explain the tax bill).
