Lengthy list of properties eligible for October 2 tax sale published by GBP PDF Print E-mail

A lengthy list of 128 properties on which real estate taxes are currently overdue and are targeted for tax sale on Tuesday, October 2, has been published by Green Banner Publications.
The list can be found in The Scott County Journal and The Chronicle on Saturday, August 25, and Saturday, September 1. It was first published in those newspapers on August 18.


An auction of listed properties will begin at 10 a.m. that Tuesday and will be held in the Commissioners’ Room, located on the first floor of the Courthouse in downtown Scottsburg.
According to the legal notice in which the properties are listed, the County Auditor and County Treasurer will apply on or after September 14 for court judgments against these tracts of land in amounts not less than the amount listed with each tract. Those officials will also request a court order to sell the properties at the October 2 public auction.
Owners of the tracts will retain a right of redemption, but any defense to the application for judgment must be filed with Scott Circuit Court and served on the County Auditor and County Treasurer by September 14. Defense papers must be filed with the County Clerk’s Office. All offices are located in the Courthouse in downtown Scottsburg and are open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, holidays excepted. An explanation of the minimum amount for which each property will be sold can be found in the legal advertisement in The Journal and The Chronicle.
If a property’s total amount of judgment is paid in full prior to the October 2 sale date, it will not be included in the auction. Property redemption steps are also outlined in the legal ad.
The Auditor and Treasurer have the right to withhold any parcel from the October auction if the property was listed in error or has otherwise become ineligible either prior to October 2 or during the auction.
Persons interested in bidding for properties in the October 2 sale may register on-line at http://www.sri-taxsale.com/Tax/Indiana/Registration/.

Those without computer access may register the morning of the sale 30 minutes before its starting time of 10 a.m. Arriving at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the sale will ensure that all prospective bidders will receive their bid numbers before the sale begins.
