The county recovers the loss of uncollected property tax revenue at the annual tax sale. The county sells its tax lien on the property to attending purchasers for the amount of taxes, interest and cost associated with the sale. The notice of sale must be published for three consecutive weeks in a legal newspaper within the county. As a general rule, this office publishes the notice every Thursday for three weeks and then holds the sale either the last Thursday in July or the first Thursday in August. State statute provides a tax lien purchaser interest at 15% per annum in addition to a 3% penalty the day of the purchase. Subsequent year taxes may also be paid by the purchaser and earn 15% interest.
You must be 18 years of age to attend the tax sale. (Per County Attorney's opinion)
