Free workshop on County Tax, Certificate sales Thursday, Aug. 16

The Neighborhood Resources Connection’s 2018 Neighborhood Leadership Academy Workshop series continues with a workshop on the St Joseph County Tax Sale and Certificate Sale.

The free workshop will be held on Thursday, August 16 at 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. in the Holobyn Meeting Room of the SJC Public Library Tutt Branch, 2223 Miami St.

The workshop will help South Bend residents better understand the process of how tax liens are sold. When owners fall behind on property taxes, the liens may be auctioned — providing opportunities for neighbors to become better stewards of these neglected assets. Participants will learn more about these auctions, the legal steps winning bidders must follow, the redemption rights of property owners, and whether this method of acquiring property is right for them.
