Tuesday Sheriff Land Tax Sale

 

civilcourtsSt. Louis City Land Tax Sale

(arrive early to get bid number and must fill out a Bidder Information Sheet  – best to do in advance- and present a photo ID).
4th Floor, Civil Courts Bldg, 10 N Tucker

Sheriff Land Tax Sales Requirements

Taxes may be owed for more than the amount of the current tax sale. Taxes may be paid off since the Tax Sale List was published. Taxes may be paid off at the last minute to avoid Tax Sale.

Check with Geo St. Louis for the most up to date information available online – search by address only

As examples…

2200 S 12th in Soulard is up for Tax Sale for $10,904.00 but Geo St. Louis shows more taxes owed (Tax #186-269, The Mac Era Inc)

1106 Lafayette in Soulard/LaSalle Park is on the Tax Sale list owing $3,343 but Geo St. Louis shows it has been paid off and only owes for 2016 (Tax #186-130, Koenig Enterprises Inc)

Tuesday’s Tax Sale included several properties owned by nuisance property absentee landlord Giro Katsimbrakis (St. Louis Redevelopment Co LLC). In the past, he has paid off back taxes just before the sale. And, again, he has paid the taxes off at the last minute, so these nuisances remain his properties and neighbors’ problems.

Check with Circuit Court Clerk for Mechanic Liens still owed on the property

Check with Recorder of Deeds Land Records Index for IRS and Sewer Liens owed on the property- search by owner or address
