Tax Sale

Summary of Tax Sale Process & General Information

Tax Sale dates are determined by court proceedings and will be listed accordingly.

The purpose of a tax sale auction is to collect delinquent revenue and put properties back into productive use.  Although the majority of property owners pay their taxes on time, owners who do not pay their property taxes force us to take extreme measures.  A tax sale is the last resort available.

Persons wishing to find investment properties, or perhaps purchase a home, may benefit from attending a tax sale auction.  Anyone interested in tax sale properties should be aware that there are serious risks, restrictions and requirements involved in purchasing a property at a delinquent tax sale.
