The Snohomish County Treasurer conducts an annual Tax Lien Foreclosure Sale, pursuant to RCW Chapter 84.64Our once-a-year live auction sale of property sold for 3rd year delinquent property taxes is held the first part of December each year, at an auditorium of our choosing. Sale dates and parcels are NOT available until September each year.

The 2016 Tax Lien Foreclosure Sale (Superior Court cause #16-2-15150-31 filed 06/08/2015) was held December 7, 2016. A list of the SOLD PROPERTIES will be available on this website soon, without a Public Record Request. Please do not contact the Treasurer Department for this list. Any other public record request-see the Requests for Foreclosure Information tab.

The list of properties that may be in the 2017 sale will not be available until after mid-September 2017. The list will first be published in The Everett Herald newspaper, and then posted here on the Snohomish County Treasurer web page after publication.

Note: Property that is foreclosed by banks, mortgage companies and other lenders is often sold at ‘Trustee’s Sale’ on the courthouse steps on Fridays. The Treasurer office does NOT have information on those lending agency foreclosures.
