Stafford property nearly $150K behind on taxes

The owner of a 4.2-acre parcel on U.S. 17 near the Interstate 95 interchange in Stafford owes nearly $150,000 in overdue county taxes.

The property at 541-543 Warrenton Road includes a Quality Inn, Comfort Suites and Sam’s Pizza and Subs. It’s owned by an entity called Interstate 95 LLC, which is registered out of Manassas.

That parcel, labeled Tax Map 45-30, has the highest outstanding tax balance of any single property in Stafford, according to data from the county’s treasurer office. The total balance, about $146,168, is nearly double the amount due on any other property.

Local governments can sell properties at auction after real estate taxes have gone unpaid for at least two years. Taxes are paid in full for 2010 and some of 2011 on the Stafford property, so it’s not currently subject to a tax sale.
