**Certified funds are required beginning September 1**

Payments Received after September 30

All real property tax not paid by September 30, of the current year will be advertised as delinquent for public auction (Tax Lien Sale). Therefore, an additional $10.00 fee will be required along with the tax payment to cover advertising expenses (amount is subject to change). Advertising will run for three consecutive weeks during the month of October.

What if my taxes are sold at Tax Lien Sale?

If your current year taxes remain unpaid, a tax lien will be issued against your property at Tax Lien Sale. The property itself is not sold at Tax Lien Sale! However, if your taxes remain unpaid for three consecutive years, a Treasurer's Deed may be issued. Please see Redemption of Tax Liens, Tax Lien Sale, Endorsement of Tax Liens, and Treasurer's Deed for additional information.

Interest is calculated monthly. Please contact the Treasurer's Office at (970) 498-7020 for current figures.
