Oswego County Will Hold Auction of Tax Properties March 12, 2011

Oswego -- The Oswego County Real Property Tax Service will sell up to 5 parcels of tax delinquent properties at a tax property auction Saturday, March 12, at the Oswego County Courthouse, 25 E Oneida St.

Oswego County takes title to residential and farm properties after the taxes have gone unpaid for approximately four years. Title is taken for vacant land and commercial properties after two years of non-payment of taxes. The auction inventory may include open land, mobile home sites, residential, commercial and waterfront properties.

Prior owners who did not pay the back taxes are now prohibited from bidding at auction and no longer have legal interest or rights in the tax delinquent parcels they once owned.

Debra Mullenax, Director of Real Property Tax Service, said a complete list of properties with photos and maps of each parcel are listed on the Oswego County Web site at oswegocounty.com/rpts or the Sivers Auction Service Web site at www.siversauctionservice.com.

Registration will be at 9 a.m. and the auction will begin at 10 a.m. In order to register, citizens must provide their driver's license or other acceptable photo ID, and their social security number.

Bidders will receive a description and view a computer presentation that includes a photograph of each parcel as it is offered for sale. Prior owners, their immediate family members, and anyone having delinquent property taxes in Oswego County may not bid at the auction.

More information is available by contacting the Oswego County Real Property Tax Service at 349-8315 or 1-800-596-3200, ext. 8315 or oswegocounty.com/rpts; or Sivers Auction Service Inc. at 343-3325, www.siversauctionservice.com.
