A public auction for the sale of tax delinquent land in Saline County will be held at the Benton Municipal Complex on Tuesday, September 16 at 10 a.m. Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m.
Recent legislation has affected the procedures for the sale of tax delinquent properties, and purchasers should take the time to review the changes prior to the auction dates. The Commissioner of State Lands provides a catalog of tax delinquent lands containing the current statutes governing the sales, auctions dates, times, location and other pertinent information regarding parcels being offered. The catalog can be found on the Commissioner's website at www.cosl.org or is available in print by mail.
"Properties at auction no longer have a minimum bid of the assessed value of the property," Commissioner Thurston said. "Bidding begins at the moment of taxes and fees that are due."
The redemption period has also changed. Owners of properties sold at auction now have ten days to redeem the property following the sale. Delinquent property owners may call the office at (501) 324-9422 to request a petition to redeem, or they may look up the delinquent parcel on the website and print the form there.
