Michiana residents spent the weekend learning the bidding process on houses in Elkhart County’s upcoming property tax sale.

Our reporting partner, The Elkhart Truth reports of Friday afternoon, 1,300 properties were up for grabs at October’s sale. Residential, commercial, and industrial properties will be auctioned off, with most of the properties coming from Elkhart and Goshen.

Property owners have until noon Oct. 1 to catch up on taxes owed to the county. If owners can’t pay their bill at this time, their properties will head to the tax sale the following day. The sale is Oct. 2 in room 104 at the Elkhart County Administration Building.

The highest bidder on each property will receive a tax scale certificate. The original owner will have one year after the tax sale to redeem the property. If no taxes are paid back, the bidder can begin seeking the land title.

There are two more chances to learn about the tax sale. The People’s History of Elkhart will host a tour Sept. 22. The group will also help renovate a former tax sale home the following weekend on Sept. 29 in Elkhart.
