Owners

 

The following schedule applies to payments made to the Treasurer by property owners wanting to prevent their parcels from being sold in this year's Tax Sale. The owner must make payment by CashCertified CheckCashier's Check, or Money Orders Only.  NO PERSONAL CHECKS, OR BUSINESS CHECKS WILL BE ACCEPTED.  (The Treasurer will not accept more than $10,000.00 in cash.)
– In order to keep the property out of the Tax Sale scheduled to begin October 5, 2017, the owner has until October 3, 2017 to pay all delinquent taxes, penalties, and delinquent special assessments due on their parcel(s) plus a Tax Sale Administrative Cost to keep the property out of the Tax Sale.  After October 3, 2017 the owner must pay the fall charges as well.  No payments will be accepted on Tax Sale items the day before the sale so that the Treasurer can make necessary preparation for the conduct of the sale.
If the parcel is sold before the owner makes the full payment, the owner can redeem the parcel through the Marion County Auditor's office approximately one week after the parcel has been sold in the Tax Sale.
– In order to redeem a property that was sold at the Tax Sale, the owner must pay all delinquent taxes, penalties, delinquent special assessments, solid waste and storm water service fee (if applicable), other current special assessments (if applicable) a 10% or 15% redemption fee (depending on when the property is redeemed), and the Tax Sale Administrative Cost.
Payments made by the owners on the dates of the public auction must be paid in full – no partial payments will be accepted.  Payments will be accepted by the Treasurer after 8:00 a.m. at the City-County Building, 200 E. Washington Street, Room 1001.
Before the Tax Sale day, owners may make partial payments toward the minimum Tax Sale price. There is no minimum amount of partial payment required. After payment of the Tax Sale Advertising Fee (which is included in the Administrative Cost), any partial payments made will reduce the minimum bid amount and will save total redemption costs to the owner if the property is sold.
If an "A" and “C” item is not sold at the Tax Sale and the owner does not pay all charges due on the parcel, the County may request a Tax Deed 120 days after the sale ends.
