Collection of Delinquent Taxes & Property Sales

Collection of Delinquent Taxes

If you received a letter from the Legal Department or a summons and complaint for collection of delinquent property taxes you should pay the taxes as soon as possible.  

To avoid further litigation or sale of your property, you may pay your taxes at the following websites:

Property Sales

Typically, one delinquent property tax sale is held each year.  Information about the sale may be obtained from the Rutherford County Chancery Court.  

Delinquent Tax Auction

There are currently no scheduled delinquent tax sales.

The City has conducted previous online tax sales using GovEase.   

Bidders will need to pre-register and be approved prior to the sale date to bid. Bidders may sign-up for online training through GovEase under Help / Training Signup. Many other resources are available to help bidders learn more about the process under the “Help” tab on the GovEase site.
