Tax Foreclosures

The Snohomish County Treasurer conducts an annual Tax Lien Foreclosure Sale, pursuant to RCW CHAPTER 84.64. Our once-a-year sale of property sold for 3rd full 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 2017 Tax Lien Foreclosure Sale (Superior Court cause #17-2-05602-31 filed 06/06/2017) was held December 6, 2017.

A list of the 2017 SOLD PROPERTIES is available here, 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 on this page.

The list of properties that may be in the 2018 sale will not be available until after mid-September 2018. 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.
