Utah is classified as a Tax Deed state. Sales are conducted annually, usually on the 3rd Thursday in May, by the county treasurer. The county holds the property for a period of four years from the date when the property first became delinquent. On March 15 following the fourth year, a tax sale listing will be made for all outstanding properties. OTC Deeds are available when parcels aren't purchased at the annual sale.
