By hosting the sale online, bidders that would not normally be able to attend the auction in person are now able to participate.

A tax title sale is the sale of properties that have delinquent real estate taxes due. The tax titles for these properties are sold to the public for the amount of the delinquent taxes due, plus all accrued interest, collection fees, 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 for the least percent ownership interest in the property.

Winning bidders do not immediately own the property. The property owner can redeem the property by repaying the tax collector only for the purchaser plus redemption penalty and redemption interest. If the property is not redeemed within three years (eighteen months for legally blighted properties) the tax title holder can pursue the property’s title.

Interested parties without access to a computer can participate in the auction via kiosks to be set up in City Hall on auction days.

Those who would like to make a payment to remove their property from the sale, or for any other inquiries, please call Civicsource® customer service at 1-888-387-8027.

Winning bidders at the tax sale must 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 CivicSource.com website. Using the convenient search options, bidders can set the parameters for any property that falls within their interests and budget.
