White County, as Trustee, has completed their tax deed proceedings on real estate properties that were delinquent for 2015 and prior real estate taxes. The County will now offer for sale the real estate obtained to the public. They will offer approximately 50 items through a sealed bid auction sale. All sealed bids must be in the White County Treasurer’s Office located in the White County Courthouse, 301 E. Main Street, Carmi, IL 62821 no later than the close of business on December 6, 2019.
The sale of these lots should be a major benefit to both the Taxing Districts and the neighboring property owners. The sale will place the properties in the hands of individuals who have an interest in owning them. The County hopes that these new owners will both maintain the property and keep the real estate taxes paid By eliminating abandoned properties, the appearance of the neighborhood should improved and the value of adjoining properties should increase.
The required minimum bid is just $815 per item. All items will be sold to the highest sealed bid received on or before December 6, 2019. Complete bidder’s packets and sale catalogs are now available at the White County Treasurer’s Office or online at www.iltaxsale.com.
