UPDATE In February, initial warning notices were sent, notifying taxpayers that they must pay, at a minimum, the 2014 and prior balances, no later than October 31, 2017. At that time we will file the Certificate of Delinquency, at which point all amounts due PLUS additional foreclosure costs of up to $2000.00 must be paid to redeem the parcel from the foreclosure action.

The 2017 Certificate of Delinquency, which initiates the tax foreclosure legal action, will be filed in November of 2017.  Payment by October 31, 2017 will prevent inclusion in the foreclosure action. Parcels in the 2017 tax foreclosure action include those with ANY taxes or fees that are delinquent from 2014 or prior.  THIS IS A CHANGE FROM OUR PREVIOUS PAYMENT DEADLINE OF APRIL 30th. Parcels owing taxes, assessments, liens or fees from 2014 and/or prior will be included in this proceeding.  The 2017 tax foreclosure auction will be held online at in September of 2018.

King County parcels subject to foreclosure will be posted at no later than early August of 2018.  The 2018 “Terms of Sale” will be available at Bid4Assets at that time.
