Tax Sale

The Treasurer is required to conduct a tax sale every year to offer Certificates of Purchase on properties with unpaid taxes.

Learn more from the Tax Sale Pamphlet (PDF) available at the Treasurer's Office.

Investors attend the tax sale to take advantage of the interest rate of return on the taxes they pay, 15% plus a 3% penalty. Other taxpayers attend the sale to try and gain interest in specific parcels of land around the county. Either way, it's important to know about tax sales and how they work. 

​Assignment of Certificate of Purchases

The Assignment of Certificate of Purchase (PDF) is available for changing the name attached to a Tax Sale assignment. The form must be notarized and sent in with the $20.00 Fee.
