A Knox-based furniture manufacturer appears to be headed for tax sale.
Selected Furniture, located at 1001 W. Culver Road, specializes in the manufacture of commercial and restaurant furniture. According to records released by the Starke County Treasurer’s office, delinquent property taxes have put the property on which the operation resides at risk for tax sale.
The property is owned by Indiana Industrial Holdings, LLC. and, according to the tax sale legal announcement, owes just under $34-thousand on the land.
Selected Furniture saw its property tax levy abatement revoked earlier this year. Knox Mayor Dennis Estok said a lack of communication from the company and a failure to properly file continuing tax abatement documents was a leading cause behind the move.
The company moved to Knox in 2012 and resides in the former Rockwell Windows building. At the time, the company said their move to the Midwest from China was to improve product quality and efficiency.
Landowners that did not fulfill their tax obligations had until September 12th to do so before a petition was sought in the courts to put the property up for tax sale.
