Question

When is a property eligible for tax sale?

Answer

All parcels with a balance due from spring of the prior year or before are eligible for tax sale. You have a year to redeem the property but you will also have to pay tax sale fees, interest on the minimum bid and daily accruing interest on any surplus. A courtesy tax sale letter will be mailed prior to certification of properties. You have until the day before the sale to pay the delinquent taxes.
