Tax Debt Funeral Home

A local family-owned funeral home moved into this historic building shortly after opening in the 1970s. The business was well-respected and served the surrounding community for decades. A series of unfortunate events struck the family, eventually leading to the property becoming seized by the Internal Revenue Service for unpaid taxes. Usually, once this happens, the property is sold and the proceeds are used to pay the tax debt. However, given the rural location of the funeral home, the property was never sold.

The old funeral home suffers from years of neglect and is condemned. Water damage can be found throughout the building, portions of the roof have collapsed, and made the floors weak. Cobwebs stretch across the dark hallways inside the chapel and the casket display room. In the rear of the building, an embalming room sits in total darkness. Old caskets, funeral records, furniture, embalming chemicals, and even cremated remains were left inside. Today, the building remains abandoned and there are no plans for the property.

  1. Sad no family to claim the creamains? IRS did this what do u think they will do with 87,000 new people? Guess we won’t even be able to die in peace…Unbelievable to seize it and then not sell it. Should have went back to owners…
