Cass County (Indiana) will conduct a tax sale on Wednesday, Sept. 9, 2015 for delinquent properties that have delinquent taxes and special assessments due from the prior year’s spring installment.

In Indiana, the county treasurer and auditor are required to sell tax liens on delinquent properties that remain unpaid from the prior year’s spring installment. Cass County will offer the tax sale certificates at a public sale that is not less than the total amount due in delinquent taxes, costs and penalties.

“The purpose of this tax sale is to offer these delinquent properties in order to collect back taxes to help fund local government services,” explained County Auditor Vaneen M. Ide.

“There are currently 195 properties available for the sale, totaling $749,402.87 in delinquencies,” said Cass County Treasurer Kathy J. Adair.

In addition to serving as a source for local governments to collect unpaid property taxes, tax sales also serve an an opportunity for real estate investors to earn interest income upon redemption of the property within one year from the sale, or to take title to the property through a post-tax sale process that involves petitioning the local court for a tax deed.
Cass County has contracted with SRI, Inc, an Indianapolis-based company founded in 1989 that conducts tax sales, commissioners’ certificate sales and commissioners’ deed sales for over 80 counties in Indiana, Michigan and Colorado.
