2023 One Week Left to Register to Bid for Online County Auction of 410 Properties


Bidders must register by March 2 to participate 

SAN DIEGO, CA, February 23, 2023 - San Diego County Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister announced bidder registration is now open for the 2023 online property tax auction. A total of 410 properties are currently for sale.  

“The properties for sale have been in tax default for five or more years, in accordance with the California Revenue & Taxation Code, it’s time to get the properties back on the tax roll generating revenue for public services,” said McAllister. “Our online system makes it simple to research and bid on a variety of properties across San Diego County.” 

Anyone around the world can bid during the online property tax auction from March 10-15. To participate, bidders must register before March 2 at the Treasurer-Tax Collector’s tax auction website, sdttc.mytaxsale.com. They must also submit a refundable $1,000 deposit and a non-refundable $35 processing fee (some parcels may require a larger deposit). 

“We have 45 residential or commercial properties, 293 timeshares, and 72 parcels of land for sale. The County stands to bring in $4,054,258 in tax revenue if all the properties are sold for the minimum bid,” McAllister continued. “Potential bidders who want to receive email reminders about deadlines are encouraged to sign up for e-notifications at sdttc.com.”

All sales are final, so this is a buyer beware sale. The TTC recommends beginning the research process on its website

Owners of the auctioned properties can still avoid going to sale; they have until 5 p.m. on March 9 to redeem their parcels and pay all taxes and fees owed. Before the sale, every effort is made to contact the owners of these properties to notify them about the impending sale.
