On March 31 the Wayne County Treasurer's Office after months of television ads saying that the deadline for paying delinquent taxes could not be delayed due to state law, a six week extension was announced. This was the direct result of popular pressure from several community-based organizations.

We need to extend this delay past May 12 for a real moratorium on all tax foreclosures until this crisis can be resolved. There are still 37,000 owner-occupied home seizures pending and more than 62,000 foreclosures overall set to take place. This must be stopped immediately!

There is no reason anyone should be thrown out of their homes in Wayne County. The banks and corporations are responsible for the economic crisis facing this area.

The politicians must be pressured into demanding that the $250 million in federal hardest hit funds be utilized to pay these back taxes and that there should be a reassessment of all homes located in Detroit and Wayne County to reduce the grossly inflated tax bills.

Join us on Thurs. April 16 at Noon in front of the State Office Building (Cadillac Place) located on West Grand Blvd. between Cass and Second. Bring your signs and banners. This is the building where the offices of the Michigan State Development Housing Authority (MSHDA) is located, they are sitting on the funds that could save everyone's homes in Wayne County.

Demand an Immediate Long-term Moratorium on Tax Foreclosures!
