Attend the tax sales annually. The dates of delinquent tax sales are advertised in local newspapers before each sale.
No. Anyone can pay a tax bill. However, payment of someone else’s tax bill does not give one claim to the property.
When real property/mobile homes are sold at a delinquent tax sale, the defaulting taxpayer has one year from the date of the sale to redeem the property.
In order to redeem property before it is conveyed to a new owner, the defaulting taxpayer must pay the redemption amount. This consists of the taxes, penalties, plus interest on the bid amount (the amount for which the property was sold at the tax sale).
Yes, you must register for the sale. No, there is not a fee.
All bids must be paid in cash or certified funds before the close of business day.
The interest due to the bidder may not exceed the opening bid amount submitted on behalf of the Forfeited Land Commission (FLC), which is the amount of outstanding tax liability due on the property. Interest increases by 3% each quarter of the redemption year for a maximum of 12% possible interest earned.
If there is a failure to perform any action necessary to pass title, the Tax Collector may void a tax sale any time before the passing of the tax deed.
