Every year the Montgomery County Treasurer holds the County's annual Tax Sale to auction off all unpaid taxes for the current year. Any questions on Tax Sale procedures and delinquent property lists prior to the Tax Sale should be addressed to the Montgomery County Treasurer.
If your unpaid taxes have been sold, the Clerk's office can provide you with an Estimate of Redemption, detailing the amount necessary to redeem (pay) your taxes and remove the threat of losing your property to a tax deed.
Redemption can only be made by means of cash, certified funds or money order made payable to the Montgomery County Clerk. Once the redemption is satisfied a receipt will be issued.
If the property owner fails to pay taxes the next year by the second installment deadline, the tax buyer who purchased the prior year's taxes can purchase the subsequent year at 12% interest.
The property owner has a period of 2 to 3 years to redeem their property taxes before losing their property to a tax deed. Any costs incurred in the deed process will be added to the redemption.
