Man Seeks Help to Save Binghamton Home from Tax Auction

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Volodymyr Kurylo says it amounts to “cruel and unusual punishment.”

Kurylo’s back in Broome County, where he grew up, in an effort to settle a tax bill on a family home on Arthur Street in Binghamton.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, Kurylo said the home where his brother and sister live was left to them by their parents.

Kurylo said he and his wife learned late last month that the home had been seized by Broome County for non-payment of taxes.

When Kurylo contacted county officials, he said he was advised it was too late to settle the tax issue and that the house would be sold at auction.

Broome County officials have indicated that the state law pertaining to non-payment of property taxes has been followed.

Kurylo said his sister had not alerted him to the overdue tax issue and he learned of the situation only recently.

Kurylo is seeking assistance from county lawmakers and other officials so the back taxes can be paid and the house won’t be auctioned off.
