Delinquent Tax Sales
On the first Tuesday of October, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., (subject to change) we hold our tax sale on the steps of the Fayette County Courthouse. (Fayette County Justice Center) If the first Tuesday of the month falls on a legal holiday, the sale is held the next day, Wednesday. The opening bid for a particular piece of property is the amount of tax due, plus penalties, interest, Fi.Fa. cost, levy cost, administrative levy fee, certified mail cost and advertising cost. The property is sold to the highest bidder. If a property is not sold it will be taken back to the Fayette County Courthouse to be auctioned again at 2 p.m. on the same day. If it is not sold at the second auction it may be available at the following year’s auction.
