The current tax title property inventory consists of over 200 parcels of primarily small, irregular shaped remnants of land. A tax title property may be beneficial to an adjacent landowner who wishes to expand their total acreage. The allowable use differs for each tax title property. Some tax title properties are used as access that serves adjoining property owners and some contain environmentally sensitive areas such as wetlands or steep slopes. There are no known improvements on most of these properties. In addition, there are very few parcels that would be considered as buildable property unless they are combined with an adjacent parcel through a potential replat and change of use application.
The minimum bid to purchase a tax title property is different for each property and must cover the recording fee, advertising fee, administrative fee, and tax foreclosure costs. Some tax title properties may have assessments that would also need to be paid by the bidder. Click on this link to view the current list of available Tax Title Properties (PDF).

All tax title property is purchased "where is" and "as is" without any representation or warranty expressed or implied.
