Tax sales - right to installment agreement - payment of at least 25% of taxes due

 In Re: Sale by TCB of Bedford County of Tax Parcel G.14-0.00-007 - Appeal of Vignola (Pa. Cmwlth. March 30, 2015). 

Where an owner has paid at least 25% of the taxes due, the tax claim bureau has an affirmative duty to inform the owner of the option to enter into an installment agreement, and the failure to do so will invalidate a subsequent tax sale. [citations omitted]
