FOR IMMEDIATE RELASE


 BLACKFORD COUNTY TAX SALE


DELIQUIENT PROPERTY TAX SALE NETS $68,717 FORM THE 50 PROPERTIES AND PAID PRIOR TO THE SALE AND SOLD AT THE SALE.


HARTFORD CITY, INDIANA – 10/08/2014


 Blackford County Officials held their annual delinquent property tax sale on October, 08, 2014.  The sale was conducted by County Auditor Judy A. Confer and County Treasurer Dana Turner.  A property tax sale is required to be held in each Indiana County for those properties where an owner of real estate fails to pay the property taxes from the prior year’s first property tax bill installment.  A tax lien on the property may be sold to satisfy the tax obligation to the highest bidder.  The owners of the properties sold at the tax sale have one year to pay the delinquent property taxes, costs and penalties to keep the property.  The sale, conducted by Indianapolis-based SRI Incorporated on behalf of Blackford County, offered 52 parcels to 14 bidders.  SRI conducts tax sales in 83 counties in Indiana, Michigan, and Colorado.


This year’s tax sale resulted in the collection of $68,716.99 from owners and buyers.  50 parcels had all taxes, penalties, and costs paid in full.  Treasurer Dana Turner said, “Tax sales are a necessary function of county government.  It is only fair to the people who pay their property taxes every year to pursue those that do not pay.”


For the 36 properties that did no sell, the county commissioners acquire a tax lien.  The county commissioners may offer those properties to the public at a sale at a later date.  County Auditor Judy A. Confer commented, “It is our ultimate goal to return these properties to the tax rolls as quickly and efficiently as possible.  Property owned by people that pay their property taxes ensure our local government services are fully funded.”
