OSWEGO - The Oswego County Real Property Tax Service will sell up to 129 parcels of tax delinquent properties at the annual tax property auction Saturday, July 14, at the Oswego High School, 2 Buccaneer Boulevard.
Bidder registration begins at 8 a.m. and the auction will start at 10 a.m. An informational and early registration meeting for bidders will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. Friday, July 13, at the high school.
Pre-registration will be available online at www.collarcityauctions.com.
A complete list of properties is listed on the Oswego County website at http://www.oswegocounty.com/rpts/files/Catalog.pdf.
Betsy B. Knapp, Director of Real Property Tax Services, said new policies in effect this year allow prior owners of 2018 foreclosure properties to bid on their property. The minimum bid must be for the amount of taxes owed. Prior owners will be bidding against the general public. The opening bid restriction is only in effect against the prior owner of the tax property and not the general public.
Former owners of properties foreclosed on prior to 2018 are not eligible to bid on their foreclosed tax property.
Elected or appointed government officials and their immediate family members, and officials involved with the assessment or taxation process in any Oswego County municipality, are not eligible to bid on properties. Bidders must not have defaulted from an Oswego County tax delinquent auction within the last five years.
Bidders will receive a description and view a computer presentation that includes a photograph of each parcel as it is offered for sale.
