Right of Redemption
The owner of a property up for auction at our annual tax sale has the right to pay off all defaulted taxes, penalties, fees, and/or costs to avoid a sale. This is called right to redemption.
Right of redemption on a parcel ceases at 5 p.m. the last business day prior to the sale.
If there is an item number not offered, it means that the item has been redeemed or withdrawn prior to the sale. The term REDEEMED means all defaulted taxes, penalties, fees, and/or costs have been paid in full.
The term WITHDRAWN means the parcel will not be offered at sale. Reasons for withdrawing a parcel from sale can include, but are not limited to, an assessee who is the debtor in bankruptcy, unprobated estate, the Treasurer-Tax Collector's determination to sell at another sale, and/or an error in advertising or noticing.
Redemption (full payment) can be made by check, cashier's check, money order, Discover Card, VISA, MasterCard, American Express, cash and wire. Payment can be mailed or sent by express or priority delivery, but UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE WILL A REDEMPTION PAYMENT BE ACCEPTED IF RECEIVED IN OUR OFFICE AFTER 5:00 P.M. OF THE LAST BUSINESS DAY PRIOR TO THE SALE. Additionally, any redemption payment remitted 30 days or less prior to the date of the sale MUST be either CASHIER'S CHECK, MONEY ORDER, TRAVELERS CHECK(S), WIRE, OR CASH.
