>Attorneys offer tax help against foreclosure

Legal services attorneys from several groups will be in the County Court building from today through Friday to help people who are behind on city tax, user, sewer and water bills to prevent foreclosure.

Representatives of Legal Aid Bureau, Legal Services for the Elderly, Disabled or Disadvantaged of Western New York, and private attorneys will set up shop on the fourth floor, Part 22, at 25 Delaware Ave. The attorneys will help Buffalo residents apply for a stay of foreclosure.

The groups will obtain computer printouts of the bills, but are asking individuals to come with some money down and a payment plan that would be feasible to catch up with their city taxes or fees.
