A Tax Foreclosure sale is a legal action the county takes as its final effort to collect delinquent property taxes.

You can bid on these properties at public sales. Bidders should research each property carefully as they may find other liens against the property besides the tax debt. Each property sold “as is” with no expressed or implied warranties of any kind, including merchantability and fitness for a particular use.

Taxes, penalties and interest, court costs and expenses from the foreclosure process to the time of sale are the responsibility of the property’s purchaser.
