State Auditor to take over Sheriff’s Tax Sale

Beginning this year, the Sheriff of Braxton County will no longer conduct the sale of land due to delinquent real estate taxes, normally held in late October. The change comes with the passage of Senate Bill 552 which was enacted earlier this year. Now the West Virginia State Auditor will conduct that sale in a much different format.

The Sheriff of each county must certify a list of unpaid real estate taxes to the State Auditor my November 1. Individuals may pay their taxes to the Auditor between November 1 and the time of the sale.
