Bidders have until 8 p.m. (CST) Friday, Sept. 9, to bid on properties in the fourth and final online tax sale auction for 2016.
Shelby County government is offering more than 400 residential, commercial and vacant properties at www.CivicSource.com in the sale that began Sept. 7.
The tax sale is conducted four times each year and is a joint effort of the Chancery Court Clerk & Master and the Shelby County Trustee’s Office. For the final auction this year, the available properties are randomly grouped into four batches, with each batch having a different closing time. This will allow investors to redeploy unused capital throughout the sale.
As in the past, the opening bid for a property includes delinquent city and county taxes, accrued interest and penalty charges, court costs, attorney fees, as well as service and title costs. Owners of the property may still pay the amount of taxes governing the sale up until the close of business prior to the day of the sale.
Interested parties can sign up for the tax sale at www.CivicSource.com. Register now for a free account.
Additional questions can be directed to the Shelby County Trustee, at 901-222-0200, or the Chancery Court Clerk & Master’s office at 901-222-3900.
