year the County Treasurer must certify to the County Auditor a list of real
property on which property taxes or special assessments from the prior year’s
Spring installment are unpaid. Any delinquent taxes from last year’s Spring
installment that remain unpaid, plus penalties that have accrued on that
delinquency, will cause your property to be eligible for tax sale.

The Miami County Treasurer must certify a list of those properties eligible for
the 2010 tax sale to the County Auditor no later than fifty-one (51) days after
the due date for the Spring installment of taxes. The County
Auditor will send a Tax Sale Notice to taxpayers by certified letter informing
them of the amount of tax, penalties, and tax sale costs that must be paid to
remove their property from tax sale. Taxpayers may pay the amount due up
to the time of the tax sale.
Once a list
of the tax sale eligible properties has been certified
to the County Auditor, you will be able to view the list.

be advertised in the local newspaper.
Bidders must register prior to the start of the sale. The minimum bid is
the total amount owed on the parcel through the current year. If your bid
is accepted, you will pay the bid amount in the County Treasurer's Office and
you will be given a receipt and a Tax Sale Certificate signed by the County
Auditor and County treasurer. A Tax Sale Certificate does not convey
ownership to the property. Ownership will be conveyed through a Tax Deed
issued by the County Auditor pursuant to the statutory requirements. You
do not own the property until you receive the deed.
