Marion County’s tax sale is scheduled for Monday, June 16, at 10 a.m., at the Marion County Public Health building.
There are approximately 495 parcels, with delinquent taxes, that could be included in the sale, according to Treasurer Denise Emal. Emal predicts that 100 will likely be paid before the date of the sale.
To be considered off the tax sale, payments must be received by the Treasurer’s Office by June 13. All payments must be received as guaranteed funds. Guaranteed fund methods of payment include cash, money order or credit card.
The tax sale attracted 160 bidders last year. When a property is sold at the event, completion of the property transfer can take up to a year and nine months. At least 30 percent of properties sold are redeemed by the end of June. Less than 1 percent of the properties included in the tax sale go to deed.
A list of the properties appear in this week’s print edition of The Chronicle.
