Tax Liens FAQ's
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Selling properties at public auction for delinquent real estate taxes in Fairfax County is generally a last resort collection action inasmuch as the DTA has a wide array of collection tools and the County has an outstanding collection rate. If real estate must be sold to collect delinquent taxes, any tax sale would be handled by the County's contract legal firm for such collections, with oversight from the County Attorney's Office. If you have questions or would like to be added to a potential bidders list for real estate public auctions, please visit our collection attorney, Taxing Authority Consulting Services PC online at http://taxva.us/. You will only be notified in the event a public auction is scheduled. Please note, the Code of Virginia does not authorize the sale of tax lien certificates. Sales only occur at public auction, and the sale conveys title to the property itself. See Real Estate currently scheduled for Public Auction.
