(.1) Maintenance of Current Taxes. While enrolled in a payment agreement pursuant to this Section, a taxpayer generally is obligated to pay the current year real estate taxes that come due and owing during each subsequent year. Provided that, nothing in this paragraph shall preclude a taxpayer enrolled in a payment agreement pursuant to this Section from entering into a deferral of taxes under § 19-1307. And further provided that, so long as a taxpayer is eligible for a Tier 4 agreement or for an agreement based on an Individual Financial Assessment under subsection (d)(.3)(.e), the Department shall add current year taxes to the payment agreement unless the taxpayer directs the Department otherwise; a taxpayer who is otherwise compliant with the agreement shall be deemed to be in full compliance. A taxpayer who is compliant with any agreement approved under subsection 19-1305(d) shall be treated as paying property taxes in a timely manner and the taxpayer shall be deemed not in default on real estate tax subject to such agreement.
