Auctions of real estate properties are initiated when all other collection attempts have failed. If real estate must be sold to collect delinquent taxes, any tax sale would be handled by the county's contracted legal firm for such collections, with oversight from the Department of Tax Administration. 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 https://taxva.com/. 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.
