Hundreds of properties with delinquent taxes are being auctioned off by the Tulsa County Treasurer’s Office. The properties being auctioned owe back taxes from 2009 and will be sold to the highest bidder. Treasurer Dennis Semler expects to get more than 400 properties, ranging from vacant lots to businesses off the delinquent list.
The sale is underway at the downtown Convention Center, and will continue until the entire list of delinquent properties have been offered.
It’s an overflow crowd at a delinquent property tax sale conducted by Tulsa County Treasurer Dennis Semler. Some 500 pieces of land on which owed property taxes from 2008 haven’t been paid go up for auction. Potential bidders are looking for bargains. Landlords are looking for rental properties or fixer-uppers to sell.
The auction will continue every day this week at the Convention Center downtown until all properties are sold.
