A Southeast Texas county has sued a Beaumont couple seeking unpaid property taxes.

Hardin County officials filed a lawsuit Aug. 1 in the Jefferson County District Court to foreclose on property owned by Darin W. Long and Robyn S. Long.

Court papers say the Longs have not paid the taxes on two parcels of land — between 2011 and 2013 for one parcel and since 2012 for the second parcel. 

They owe approximately $8,287.58 in property taxes, which are due Jan. 1 of each year, according to the suit.

The county seeks a judgment that authorizes foreclosure on the two parcels, a judgment for the amount of back taxes owed, with penalties, court costs and interest.

The plaintiffs are represented by Shelburne J. Veselka and Keith Treadway of McCreary, Veselka, Bragg and Allen P.C. in Round Rock.
