Land Tax Sales

Land tax sales are events during which the City auctions off properties when the owner has not paid real estate taxes. At a land tax sale, properties are auctioned off with the bidding starting at the amount of taxes owed on the property.

Land tax sales are held several times a year. A list of the properties that will be up for bid at each sale are posted two weeks before the date of the sale.
