Real Estate Tax Sale

All parcels that have a balance due from the spring of the prior year or before (three installments behind) will be eligible for tax sale.  A certified letter will be mailed to each taxpayer who is on the tax sale list. The list is published in the local newspaper prior to the sale. A $150 tax sale charge is added to each parcel on the list.
SRI is the company that conducts the sale. They advertise the properties on their website, 30 days before the sale. There is also a layer to review tax sale properties on Montgomery County's GIS website,
  • Taxpayers may pay the amount due up to the business day before the Tax Sale to avoid sale of a lien of the property.
