The provisions of certain divestitures of liens and encumbrances appear to attract purchasers to tax sales, thus transferring non-taxpaying properties to the current tax roles and into the hands of responsible taxpayers.
The Tax Claim Bureau receives approximately 14,000 delinquent returns each year. The general activities that take place in the Tax Claim Bureau are collections, tax sales, and distribution of paid taxes. The Bureau also works very closely with all political sub-divisions with taxing authority.
Tax Sales are Judicial, commonly known as Free and Clear Sale. Upset Sales are held in September and Repository Sales held monthly. Distribution for monies collected are made monthly to taxing districts.
