What is a tax sale? Can I buy property at the tax sale?
Delinquent prior year taxes, utility charges and other Township charges will be sold to the highest bidder in the form of liens. The Township holds an annual tax sale for those properties delinquent for the prior year.

The State requires that any property listed for tax sale be publicly published and posted in the Township. The costs of publication and sale are added to the amount to be sold. Upon the sale of these liens, the purchasers (Lien Holders) may pay current year delinquencies, and add those balances to the lien. Lien Holders must wait two years before they can begin to foreclose a property. The property owner may redeem the lien at any time prior to foreclosure, through the Office of the Tax Collector.

The Township does not sell properties for unpaid taxes. To obtain more information on the tax sale process, view Municipal Lien Process.
