Tax Debt Funeral Parlor

This family-owned funeral parlor first opened its doors in the 1970s. Soon after, the funeral home needed room to grow, resulting in the purchase of this historic building. For decades, the funeral home served the surrounding community and was well respected. A series of unfortunate events struck the family and eventually the property was 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. Water damage can be found throughout the building which has collapsed portions of the roof and made the floors weak. It appears that after the property was seized by the IRS, no one ever returned. Cobwebs stretch across the dark hallways inside to 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 funeral home remains abandoned and there are no plans for the property.
