Over 650 tax-defaulted properties will be auctioned starting August 3

San Bernardino County Tax Collector Ensen Mason announced recently that his office will hold its annual online auction of tax-defaulted properties beginning August 3, 2019, with staggered closing times from August 5, 2019 through August 9, 2019. “The benefit of a tax sale is getting tax-defaulted properties back into tax paying status to fund key public services, including education, police and fire protection, and social and public health services,” Mason said. “Winning bidders have the opportunity to buy real estate at potentially reduced prices.” This tax sale auction consists of more than 650 properties that have been tax-defaulted for five or more years, and will include re-offered properties that did not sell in a previous tax sale.
