Tax Sale

Public Auction... How It Works

When secured real property remains tax-defaulted for five years, it becomes subject to the Tax Collector's Power to Sell, and may be sold. The county tax collector may offer the property for sale at public auction, a sealed bid sale, or a negotiated sale to a public agency or qualified non-profit organization. Public auctions are the most common way of selling tax-defaulted property. The purpose of offering tax-defaulted property at auction is to collect the unpaid taxes and to convey title of the property to a responsible owner. The auction is conducted by the county tax collector, and the property is sold to the highest bidder. The State Controller's website link offers information about upcoming auctions throughout California.

Tehama County does not sell tax liens for tax-defaulted properties.
