A tax sale is the sale of properties that have delinquent ad valorem taxes due. These properties are sold to the public for the amount of delinquent taxes due, plus any accrued interest, costs and other statutory impositions. If a property is sold at tax sale, the property owner has three years to redeem the property from the purchaser by paying the purchaser the purchase price plus a five percent (5%) penalty and one percent (1%) interest per month from the date of the tax sale until the date it is redeemed.
Tax Sales are conducted annually during the month of May and bidding is open to the public. The annual tax sale auction is conducted online at CivicSource.com. Click on the link http://www.civicsource.com to view properties with unpaid delinquent taxes or to register for the upcoming tax sale.
