2012 Tax Sale
 

The sales with which GUTS is assisting counties fall into 2 categories:

 

Tax Sales – These are parcels that are offered at public auction because of delinquent taxes, penalties, special assessments, and/or tax sale costs. 

 

GUTS works with the following counties to conduct a Tax Sale. The county will create their list of Tax Sale parcels in early July and the list should be on this site by the end of July.  Once the reports are available, you may click on the reports that appear below each county’s name and sale date.

Following is a brief description of each report listed under the County’s name.  These reports are best viewed in Adobe Acrobat Reader 6.0 or later.  You can download the Adobe Acrobat Reader by clicking on the following link.  Adobe Acrobat Reader.

 

Bidder List is a list of bidders who registered for this year’s sale.  The bidder number in the first column of this report corresponds to the bidder # in the last column of the Sold Items report.  There may be some bidder numbers on this list that don’t appear on the Sold Items report.  That means the bidder registered at the sale but did not purchase any items.

 

County Lien Items is a list of parcels that were offered at the Tax Sale but did not sell, so the County Commissioners obtained a lien on the parcel.

 

Sold Items is a list of parcels that were sold at the Tax Sale.  The column labeled “Sale Amount” represents the price that was paid by the Tax Sale purchaser.  The last column, labeled “Bidder #”, corresponds to the Bidder Number on the “Bidder List”.

 

Status List is a dynamic list that includes all parcels that were originally certified by the Treasurer as eligible for Tax Sale.  As a parcel’s status changes, a new report will reflect that change.  For example, if a parcel is sold and the taxpayer redeems her/his parcel, the status will change from “Sold” to “Owner Redeemed”.

Certificate Sales – (also referred to as Commissioners’ Sales) – These are parcels that were previously offered at the county’s Tax Sale and did not sell, so the County Commissioners acquired a tax certificate, which means they are a lien holder, just as if they had been a purchaser at the Tax Sale.  The Certificate Sale enables the county to offer the parcels for an amount less than the original Tax Sale minimum bid and it also provides for a shorter redemption period than the Tax Sale.

GUTS held Certificate Sales at the following counties.  You can click on “Sale Results” to see the parcels that were sold at the Certificate Sale and/or you can click on “Registered Biiders” to see the list of bidders at the sale.
