How do I pay for property purchased at a tax sale?

Payment and Fees

All properties must be paid for on the day of the sale. Cash ($1,000.00 limit) or checks are accepted as well as debit or credit cards (2.5% processing fee when using debit or credit cards). Checks should be made payable to the Clerk of the District Court. The buyer will receive a receipt upon payment.

State law requires that a $21 recording fee be collected at the time payment is made, and there is an additional charge of $17 per page after the first page. The County Counselor's staff will estimate these charges. Overcharges will be returned to the buyer. Undercharges must be paid prior to recording.
