MOBILE HOME SALES
 
Mobile home sales are typically held in June, but can be scheduled as needed.  Sale dates and property information will be posted on this website when sales are scheduled.
 
Units are sold for the amount of delinquent taxes plus penalties, mailing, advertising and collection costs.  The successful bidder must provide a $100 cash non-refundable deposit at the conclusion of the sale.  The remainder of the funds are due by noon the following day in the form of certified funds.  If the remainder of the funds are not received in our office by noon on the day following the auction, the property will be offered to the next highest bidder.  If the total bid is less than $100, the total amount must be paid at the conclusion of the auction.  Units can be redeemed up until the morning of the sale date, therefore, not all units advertised will go to sale. 

COMMERCIAL PERSONAL PROPERTY SALES
 
Sales for delinquent commercial personal property taxes are scheduled as needed. Equipment is identified and typically sold in aggregate, with the minimum bid being the amount of delinquent taxes, plus penalties, mailing, advertising and collection costs that have accrued.
 
Sales are typically held at the business site, and will require a non-refundable deposit (generally 20% of the bid amount) to be made by the successful bidder at the conclusion of the sale.  The remaining funds are due by noon on the day following the sale in the form of certified funds.  If the bid is less than $200, the total amount must be paid at the conclusion of the auction.

Sales will be advertised once a week for the two weeks prior to the sale date, and all information pertinent to the sale will be included in the advertisement. Taxes can be paid up until the morning of the sale date, therefore not all items advertised will necessarily be sold.
