Each fall, Barton County conducts their annual tax sale, a sale in which property that has remained delinquent on property tax for the last three years is sold to the highest bidder. The goal of the Barton County Treasurer’s Office is to make that sale as small as possible. Barton County Treasurer Jim Jordan updated Commissioners Monday on how his office is proceeding on collecting back taxes on those properties in advance of the 2019 tax sale that will be held in October.

Subsequent to the filing, the County will send each property owner a summons, a copy of the petition and the corresponding limited Certificate of Title by certified mail. The annual Tax Sale is held the third Tuesday in October. Delinquent tax and/or special assessments are advertised three times.
