A tax title sale is the sale of properties that have delinquent taxes due. The Tax Titles for these
 properties are sold to the public for the amount of the delinquent taxes due, plus any accrued
 interest, penalties, costs and other statutory impositions. The Tax Title Sale is a low-bid wins 
style auction in which the property is sold to the purchaser willing to bid on the least percent 
ownership interest in the property.

Winning bidders of the tax sale are expected to pay for their purchases within 72 hours of the
close of the auction. Payment must be made in one installment and all sales are final. 
These auctions and all future tax sales can be viewed on the website. Using 
the convenient search options, bidders can set the parameters for any property that falls within
their interests and budget.
