Repository Tax Sale

In order to establish a procedure to minimize the number of properties that the County holds because of delinquent tax claims, the list of Repository for Unsold Properties was created. Any property that remains unsold after the upset sale and the judicial tax sale will appear on this list. The minimum bid is $800.00 per parcel, plus filing fees. Interested parties can fill out a bid sheet and submit it to the Tax Claim Bureau for processing. Properties are conveyed free and clear of all tax and municipal claims, mortgages, liens and charges and estates of whatsoever kind, except ground rents separately taxes. Sale procedures held at the discretion of the Bureau. All bids must be submitted in person, no bids will be accepted through the mail or by fax.
