Delinquent Tax Sales
Delinquent tax sales are the last alternative to enforce collections. While selling someone's property is not desirable, it is necessary if collections are to be fairly and effectively enforced.
Denton County properties listed for sale are called Sheriff's Sales and Resolution properties. Sheriff's Sales are conducted on the first Tuesday of each month at the Denton County Courts Building at 1450 E. McKinney Street in Denton, Texas at 10:00 a.m. For a list of properties going to tax sale, go to the Sheriff's website and click on Sheriff's Sales.
A person purchasing property at the sale will be required to present to the officer who conducts the sale a written statement from the County Tax Assessor/Collector that the purchaser does not owe any delinquent taxes to the county or to a school district or municipality having territory in that county. Please call or visit our main office in Denton at least 5 business days prior to the sale to request this statement.
