87 Parcels On Scott County Delinquent Property Tax Sale List

According to a public notice ad found on page 4 of the print edition of the Times and in the public notices section of the Times online edition, there are 87 parcels of property with delinquent taxes that could be sold at an auction at the Scott County Courthouse on Thursday, Oct. 3, beginning at 10 a.m.
The number of properties is up by twelve from the 2018 tax sale.
Real estate on which property taxes have not been paid for 18 months are eligible to be offered for sale by the county for back taxes.
During the October auction, properties will be offered for late taxes, special assessments, penalties & interest and auction fees with a minimum beginning bid.
After the auction, the property owners have up to a year to ‘redeem’ or pay the successful bidder for his bid plus interest.
In the first six months, to redeem a property an owner must pay 110% of the minimum bid and 5% per annum for any bid amount over the minimum bid. After six months, the interest goes to 115%.
In this day of less than 1% savings accounts and 2% CD’s, many investors participate in tax sales as a way to earn better returns on their money.
Residents interested in bidding on the tax sale should register online at http://legacy.sri-taxsale.com/Tax/Indiana/Registration/.
Bidders should arrive the morning of the tax sale at least 30 minutes before the beginning time to be assured to receive a bid number before the start of the sale.
Bidders should bring their registration form and W-9 form with them the morning of the tax sale. These forms can be printed from the registration web site, according to Scott County Auditor Tammy Johnson.
Residents with property on the delinquent property tax list have until the day of the auction to pay the back taxes and have the property removed from the auction’s sale list.

Land auction to be held

Watersmeet — The Michigan county land auction for Baraga, Gogebic, Houghton, Iron, Keweenaw and Ontonagon counties will be held at noon CDT on Saturday at the Northern Waters Casino in Watersmeet.

Lisa Hewitt, treasurer for Gogebic County, said the county recommends “doing your homework” before purchasing any property, but she added when properties are sold through the foreclosure process most liens are discharged, except IRS and other liens filed by governmental agencies.

She directed interested folks to visit tax-sale.info for information on the available properties and bidding process.

“They have all the bidding rules, all the minimum bids and everything you would need to know for registering,” Hewitt said.

Hewitt said the tax sale is a great opportunity for someone to acquire a project home or a business and invest back into the county.

“Our goal is to just get these properties onto the tax roll,” she said.

Some important changes for this year are certified funds are needed to buy, because cash will not be accepted. Those who owe property tax or a civil fine can not purchase property in the county in which the funds are owed. The site states that under this new law, individuals may face felony prosecution if they bid on any property.

Also, a second round of sales will only be held online and each buyer will be limited to a set number of lots during that round.

Auction participants will need to check-in with an auction clerk and bring a valid photo ID.

Winning bidders are required to pay in full within 30 minutes once the auction ends, according to the website.

When the county has a batch of foreclosed properties, Hewitt said each property is evaluated to determine if it is condemned or blighted.

“We take our time to ensure that we’re offering that property to the county residents in the best possible outcome,” she said.

Nearly 1,000 parcels of tri-county land available at annual delinquent tax sale

County collector’s in the tri-county area are gearing up for the annual delinquent tax sale scheduled to be held on Aug. 26 at each respective courthouse.

County collector’s in the tri-county area are gearing up for the annual delinquent tax sale scheduled to be held on Aug. 26 at each respective courthouse.

Somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,000 parcels of land in Miller, Morgan and Camden counties will be up for sale. In Camden County, 667 parcels were on the list, a few have been paid since the legal notice began running in the Lake Sun. Miller and Morgan county collectors report approximately 250 parcels could eventually end up for sale.

By Missouri state law, any parcel of land which has not had property taxes paid for three years must go to auction to pay for the back taxes. While some counties take a hard line, sending properties to auction after only one year of delinquent taxes, Morgan, Camden and Miller counties follow the letter of the law placing them up after three. The sales are held at the county courthouses on the fourth Monday in August each year.

County tax sale brings in $1.1M

BATH | Ninety-four properties with delinquent taxes were sold in the July 12 Steuben County tax sale, bringing in approximately $1.1 million to county coffers, according to Finance Commissioner Patrick Donnelly.

Donnelly told the county Legislature on Monday there was only one parcel that failed to sell -- a “landlocked” site with no room to expand, which he said is a common reason for properties to go unsold.

Among the 95 properties put up for sale were four with existing use agreements in place from the DEC because of contamination on the sites.

All four of those sites sold as well, Donnelly said.

Hundreds turned up for the auction, which was held this year in the auditorium at Campbell-Savona Junior/Senior High School in Campbell.

The 95 parcels listed for sale were significantly more than last year, when 71 went on the block.

Donnelly also noted that although the law requires a buyer pay 30 percent of the purchase price on the day of the sale, more than half of the purchases this year were paid in full up front.

“That’s been increasing over time,” he noted

One of the key players in the auction for the last 16 years, according to Donnelly, has been Cindy Smith, part of the county’s finance team.


Donnelly called her the “ringmaster” of the annual tax sale.

On Monday, Smith, who is retiring, was recognized by the Legislature for her 30 years of service to the county.

Town of Benton to conduct online tax sale August 6

On Tuesday, August 6, the Town of Benton will host their annual tax sale online at CivicSource.com. The auction opens at 8:00 a.m. and closes at 8:00 p.m., subject to a sliding close. Four properties are slated for auction, ranging from $500 to $546. The sale is open to the public, and registration is free.

The auction price is fixed at tax, interest, costs and other impositions due, so instead of competitive price bidding, ownership interest in property is bid down. The winning bid is the least percent ownership bid on any property. Winning bidders receive tax title certificates, an interest-bearing investment returning five percent and one percent per month until paid. If not repaid within three years, the purchaser receives property ownership in the amount equal to percent bid at auction, subject to the taxes being paid.

Property auction sale announced for land along Mermentau River

Nearly 4,000 acres of land, divided into 38 separate parcels, located in Acadia, Jeff Davis, and Vermilion Parishes, and situated along the Mermentau River and its tributaries between Lake Arthur and Interstate 10, will be auctioned to the public on August 28, 2019.

There will be no minimum bid requirements and the present owners will reserve the minerals.

The auction sale will take place at the Acadia Parish Courthouse in the "Police Jury" room on the third floor, starting at 10 a.m.

The properties are being sold pursuant to a court order issued in a partition suit filed by co-owners of the properties. A "partition" is a legal proceeding brought by a co-owner of property, seeking to force a sale of the property by sheriff's auction in a manner similar to a tax sale.

The tracts are generally situated along the banks of bayous and streams, and many have stands of timber. The properties were owned by Texaco throughout most of the 20th century until being sold into private hands in the 1990s.

The properties will initially be offered as a package, and then individually. If the highest bid for the properties as a package exceeds the total of the high bids on the individual tracts, the properties will be sold to the high bidder for the properties as a package. Otherwise the properties will be sold to the individual high bidders.

Additional information about the auction sale and the specific terms and conditions under which the properties will be sold can be found online at: "mermentaulandsale.com."

The Acadia Parish Courthouse is located at 500 North Parkerson Avenue, Crowley, LA 70526.

Dozens of Properties Sold In Phase 1 of Broome Real Property Tax Foreclosure Auction
BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -

Hundreds of bidders took part in Broome County's Real Property Tax Foreclosure Auction on Saturday. 

Hosted at the Holiday Inn in Downtown Binghamton, foreclosed properties of all types throughout the county were sold off to the highest bidder. 

David Hamlin, Director of Broome County Real Property, said that over 90 properties were sold at Saturday's auction. 

"This is phase 1 of County properties, excluding the city of Binghamton, and phase two will be August 10th," said Hamlin. 

According to Hamlin, a second auction will be held August 10th. 

"We’ve foreclosed on 227 properties, which is heavy. And we did just over 50 sell-backs to the original owners so they can stay in their homes," said Hamlin. 

Hamlin said prices are strong. 

"Some properties are going for retail price," said Hamlin. "People have walked out saying prices are too high and that’s what we like, of course, because I have to make $1.2 million a year net after writing off all the back taxes for the county."

"What the county hopes is that these new owners will take better care of the properties pick them up, bring them back," said Hamlin. "There's been some new transformations in the past, our properties that people bought, they're things you wouldn't recognize today, and hopefully the new life that it brings will benefit the entire area"

Hamlin also announced that he will be retiring as the county's Director of Real Property on September 30th. He said the county has already selected someone to take over the position starting October 1. 

"We’re really excited about that and that will be coming out in the future who that individual is," added Hamlin.

County deed sale brings 162 properties back on the tax rolls

MUNCIE, Ind. – The Delaware County commissioners' deed sale saw big success, according to officials, achieving the goal of bringing a lot of delinquent properties back onto the tax rolls.

Charlie Richmond, the Delaware County auditor’s first deputy, said that just over half of the properties on the overall list were sold. That equates to 162 properties of the 321 that were listed for the sale.

Because of the sale, the county brought in nearly $416,000 for the properties. Extra gains after the sale’s costs are paid go back to county's general fund and future tax and deed sales.

“It was a great effort working with Ed Carroll in the treasurer's office and Steve Craycraft's team in the auditor’s office,” Richmond said. “A lot of staff work was put into this and we are really happy with the turnout.”

The commissioners decided last fall that they would hold the deed sale as an additional sale for any property that remained unsold after the annual tax sale.

While the additional sale itself costs a lot of money to put together, officials have said that moving non-tax-producing properties from a severely delinquent status back onto the tax rolls is worth the effort.

As for the bids, the lowest bid in the sale was $350 because of a minimum bid of that amount set by the county. If a property had a structure on it or was listed as a commercial lot, the minimum bid was $550.

Commissioner Sherry Riggin attended the sale to see how the turnout was and said she was pleased with nearly 400 people who were in attendance.

According to Richmond, there were 207 registered bidders in the sale, with 92 of them becoming the actual buyers of the properties sold.

County officials said they would plan another deed sale in approximately 60-90 days for unsold property and ones that couldn’t readied for this sale.

More information about that future sale would come from officials at a later date.

Trousdale County to hold delinquent tax sale on April 16

Trousdale County is scheduled to hold its first tax delinquency sale in four years later this month.

The sale is scheduled for Tuesday, April 16 beginning at 10 a.m. at the Trousdale County Courthouse on Main Street.

At press time, there were 17 properties set to go on the auction block, with just over $167,000 worth of back property taxes owed. Property owners can redeem the property at any point before the sale by paying the back taxes.

Trousdale County’s last tax sale was in 2015.

Bidding will start on each piece of property at the amount of taxes owed. Under state law, the county makes the opening bid with citizens allowed to increase the bid. If no one bids on a property, the county automatically takes possession.

Also, winning bidders don’t get possession of the property immediately. State law gives owners one year from the date of sale to redeem the property, again by paying the back taxes owed. Bidders must pay up front but will be refunded if the original owner reclaims the property during that year.

Reach Chris Gregory at 615-374-3556 or cgregory@hartsvillevidette.com.

Tax sale generates over $25,000

Six properties at the Dickinson County tax auction didn’t even sell.

Five properties sold for just $25.

Yet, the auction of properties that have failed to pay property taxes for the last three years was highly successful with 20 properties generating $25,126.

In 2018 just 14 properties sold for $4,810. In 2017 a dozen properties sold for $9,667.

Helping boost the auction total was an $11,000 bid by Stan Arveson for a lot located in south Chapman next to the Smoky Hill River, 129 E. First Street.

There were 26 properties Dickinson County Sheriff Gareth Hoffman attempted to sell to the highest bidders. Undersheriff James Swisher and Kelly Reid helped with the auction that attracted about 40 people. There were 11 different buyers.

Those that didn’t sell will be in the auction in 2020.

If real estate taxes remain unpaid for three years, property becomes eligible for tax foreclosure by the county. After due process, the property is sold at auction to the highest eligible bidder. The tracts are sold “as is.” Taxes had not been paid on the 26 properties for at least five years.

Of the 26 properties, 15 were in Herington, five in Abilene, two in Enterprise, two with Junction City addresses and one in Chapman.

Dickinson County Counselor Doug Thompson who is in charge of the annual tax sale said the new owners were responsible for half of current property taxes. The new owners are also responsible for specials and must pay a $38 handling fee.

The two properties that had specials were among those that didn’t sell.

“Back taxes are eliminated. This is that sale to pay those taxes,” Thompson said. “And it at least gets the property back on the tax roll.”

Thompson announced that the previous owners can’t buy the property back.

“Or if you are related to the owner, you can’t participate in the sale,” he said.

Thompson said when he became the county counselor there hadn’t been a tax sale for several years. The first sale he was involved in had 400 parcels.

Yavapai County annual tax lien sale

It is time for the annual Yavapai County Treasurer Office’s tax lien sale, which will take place Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2019.

There are 3,064 properties listed this year. That is 785 more properties listings than last year’s 2,279, according to the Yavapai County Treasurer’s Office.

“Tax lien sales are a lien that’s sold, not the property, itself, but a lien on the property for delinquent taxes,” Treasurer Ross Jacobs said previously.

This year the county is selling the 2017 taxes. For the full tax lien list see pages 1C-12C in today's Courier.

If a property is delinquent on taxes from two years ago, or earlier, it can result in a lien being placed on a property. The county will place a property in the tax sale if parcels are delinquent on tax payments for 9 to 18 months.

The Feb. 12 tax sale is an online auction at yavapai.arizonataxsale.com.

Arizona Newspaper Association Legislative Consultant Paula Casey thinks it is always important to advertise the sale of a lien on a property.

“There have been cases where people did not know of the lien until a neighbor or acquaintance tells them they saw it in the paper,” Casey said. “Granted, most of the properties listed have had adequate notice to the owners but there is always the few who are caught unaware. The advertising also brings in more buyers and hopefully more money for the counties.”

Casey has been posting tax liens on the ANA aggregated public notice website for at least 10 years and said prospective buyers start calling and emailing weeks before the sales to get the list as soon as it is available.

“Most counties are now posting the notices on their websites. The counties believe that the more exposure they get, the more buyers show up,” Casey said.

Legislature hires auctioneer for tax auction

HERKIMER — Herkimer County’s tax foreclosure auction is expected to take place in June and the county Legislature took a step toward preparing for it Wednesday by voting to enter into a three-year contract with Michael W. Knapp Jr. to conduct it.

The contract covers the auctions for the In Rem tax foreclosure parcels for 2019, 2020 and 2021, covering the 2017, 2018 and 2019 In Rem sale years. Auctions by Knapp will be paid $400 for each parcel sold at auction, $200 per parcel offered but not sold at auction and $200 for any parcel that is removed or withdrawn from the auction list after the day Herkimer County takes title to the parcels.

The Legislature voted last year to extend a five-year contract with Knapp for one year.

Action on the properties being considered for auction will begin in mid- to late-March after the deadline passes for property owners to pay their taxes, according to Herkimer County Administrator James Wallace. A judge will appoint an attorney to handle the process and the list of properties will then come to the Legislature.

The auction is generally held the first Saturday in June, Wallace said.
