What does “Certified to Court” mean?

When business personal property taxes go unpaid, we mail a "Demand Notice" requesting payment of delinquent taxes. When the Demand Notice goes unpaid, it is turned over to American Financial Credit Services (AFCS) for collection. Interest, which begins to accrue daily from the date of Certification, and collection fees are applied to the original certified amount. Legal action may be instituted to help complete collection of taxes owed.
