OROVILLE, Calif., June 10, 2021 (Newswire.com) - The Butte County Treasurer-Tax Collector's Office will host a tax-defaulted properties sale beginning June 11, 2021. In an effort to avoid COVID-19 related concerns that may arise at a live auction, the tax-defaulted properties sale will be held through online auction website Bid4Assets.com.
"Our goal is to have every property owner pay their taxes so that we can remove their properties from the auction," said Troy Kidd, Butte County Treasurer-Tax Collector. "If that doesn't happen, we need to auction the property. An online tax sale maximizes sales and costs the residents of Butte County absolutely nothing."
Online bidding begins June 11, 2021, at 8 a.m. PT (11 a.m. ET) and ends June 14. Bidders must create a free Bid4Assets account and fund a $5,000 deposit before they are able to participate in this sale. Deposits are due no later than Tuesday, June 11, 2021. To view more details about this sale including a full property list go to www.bid4assets.com/butte21.
Minimum bids will range from $1,745 to over $105,000. All auctions are no reserve, meaning the highest bid at or above the minimum bid will win the auction. This will be Butte County's first tax sale since 2018.
"We look forward to working with Butte County to take their tax sale online," said Jesse Loomis, Bid4Assets' CEO. "Counties all over the country are seeing the benefits of moving public auctions online. COVID-19 may be the impetus for change, but online tax sales will become the new normal beyond the pandemic."
