Once a property becomes subject to potential auction, the taxpayer has until the last business day in June. Once that deadline passes, the properties become tax-defaulted and will be subject to power to sell. The law does not allow for installment plans to be started after this occurs and in order to “redeem” the property all tax delinquencies must be paid in full before 5pm the day before the public auction begins and properties are sold at public auction.
I do not pride myself at selling property at auction and do not want to see anyone lose their home, so it is my duty as your elected official to educate and reach as many Nevada County taxpayers as possible in order to avoid this outcome. There are a number of publications released through our local media, certified letters and telephone call to property owners and parties of interest, and personnel contact.
We ask that if you recognize a name on the published list to please inform that person of the delinquency. Although we do thorough research to give written notice to the owners of the properties, there are a few that do not have valid addresses on file and may not be notified as timely as we would like. Time is crucial in this process.
The date for taxpayers to start an installment plan for potential auction property is June 30 of each year. Once this deadline passes, properties can only be redeemed if paid in full by 5pm the day before the auction begins. Payment must be in the form of cash or cashier's check. All remaining properties with a defaulted tax year five years or more will go to auction. The tax auction is held online through www.Bid4Assets.com and all information on how to bid on a parcel is contained on this site.
