Due to the social distancing requirements during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Scott County Treasurer's Office is cancelling the 2020 annual tax sale. This is a decision determined by each county treasurer.
Delinquent taxes are published in June and subject to the annual tax sale on the third Monday of June when a tax sale certificate is issued to the purchaser. If the taxes are not purchased after two publications, a tax sale certificate is issued to Scott County. If the taxes are redeemed within a given period of time the certificate holder will be given deed to the property. Properties taken this way by the County are usually sold at an auction.
