County tax sale meeting Aug. 14

CLAY COUNTY — The Clay County Collector’s Office is partnering with CivicSource, an online auctions site for tax-distressed real estate, to host community information sessions on how to participate in the upcoming tax sale. Sessions will be held at noon and 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 14, at Restoration 1894, located at 1 E. Kansas St. in Liberty.

The events are free and open to the public, with lunch provided at the noon session. Training on all aspects of bidding in the 2019 delinquent tax auction will be covered. To reserve a seat, visit events.CivicSource.com.

“While traditional tax lien sales require participants to be physically present at the courthouse during an auction, Clay County’s technology-driven auctions take place online,” states a release. “The accessible online auctions allow bidders to conduct property research and participate in the tax sale from any internet-ready device.”

Clay County Tax Collector Lydia McEvoy hosted the county’s annual tax sale online with CivicSource for the first time in 2017. More than 150 properties are scheduled to be auctioned this year.

All bidders must register online by 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 21, at CivicSource.com to bid in the tax sale on Monday, Aug. 26. For the registration forms and additional tax sale guidelines, visit claycountymo.tax/taxsale.

Over 1,300 properties with delinquent taxes set for auction

New Orleans properties that have delinquent taxes due are scheduled to go to sale in an online auction.

A tax certificate sale for over 1,300 properties will be active Tuesday through Thursday at civicsource.com, according to a news release from the city. The auction is also available via kiosks on the first floor of City Hall on auction days.

Investors purchase the tax sale certificate by paying the amount of outstanding delinquent taxes and other statutory impositions. Property owners have a three-year redemptive window in which to pay the investor the delinquent amount, an immediate 5% penalty plus an additional one percent for every month since the filing of the tax certificate.

 Winning bidders are expected to pay for their purchases within 48 hours of the close of the auction, a news release said. Payments must be made in one installment, and all sales are final. However, winning bidders do not immediately own the property. The property owner can redeem the property by repaying the purchaser plus penalties and interest. If the property is not redeemed within three years — or 18 months for blighted properties — the tax title holder can pursue the property’s title.

Property owners who want to make a payment to remove their property from the auction should visit the Treasury Bureau on the first floor of City Hall before or during the tax sale, the news release said.

CITY OF NEW ORLEANS TO HOLD ONLINE TAX CERTIFICATE SALE

NEW ORLEANS — Today, the City announced it will hold an online tax certificate sale as part of its continuing efforts to collect delinquent real estate taxes. The online auction will be active Tuesday, Aug. 13, through Thursday, Aug. 15, 2019.

Over 1,300 properties are scheduled to go to sale in the auction, which is open to the general public. Free registration and a list of available properties are available at www.civicsource.com.

“The City remains committed to collecting delinquent real estate taxes,” said Chief Financial Officer Norman White. “This online tax certificate sale has provided a way to get delinquent properties back on the tax rolls. It is yet another example of an innovative tool for the City to collect the outstanding revenue she needs. The tax sale has proven to be an extremely efficient and user friendly way for those interested in tax sale properties to invest.”

A tax certificate sale is the sale of properties that have delinquent taxes due. Investors purchase the tax sale certificate by paying the amount of outstanding delinquent taxes and other statutory impositions. Property owners have a three-year redemptive window in which to pay the investor the delinquent amount, an immediate 5 percent penalty plus an additional one percent for every month since the filing of the tax certificate.

Winning bidders of the tax sale are expected to pay for their purchases within 48 hours of the close of the auction. Payments must be made in one installment, and all sales are final. However, winning bidders do not immediately own the property. The property owner can redeem the property by repaying the purchaser plus penalties and interest. If the property is not redeemed within three years (or 18 months for blighted properties), the tax title holder can pursue the property’s title.

This auction can be viewed on www.civicsource.com external link. Using the search options, prospective bidders can set the parameters for any property that falls within their interests and budget.

Individuals without immediate access to a computer can participate in the auction via kiosks that will be set up on the first floor of City Hall during normal business hours on auction days.

For property owners who would like to make a payment to remove their property from the sale, please visit the Treasury Bureau on the first floor of City Hall on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. before or during the tax sale period. Only cash, cashier’s checks or official checks will be accepted.
