This sale will be located in the Washington County Administration Building, 197 East Tabernacle, St George, Utah (Google Maps), and will be by open bidding wherein the full parcel will be sold to the highest dollar bidder. No bids will be accepted for an amount less than the outstanding balance as shown below which includes taxes, interest, penalty, and administrative costs. Any amount received in excess of the outstanding balance will be treated as surplus property and be paid to the State Treasurer. Successful bidders must tender full payment to the Washington County Treasurer by 4:00 pm of the business day immediately following the day of the tax sale. A partial payment of no less than 25% (non-refundable) of the bid amount must be paid to the Treasurer on the day of the sale. Payments must be cash, wire transfer, or certified funds made payable to the “Washington County Treasurer” in the exact amount of the bid. If a successful bidder fails to satisfy the requirements of this subsection, the Clerk/Auditor may contact the next highest bidder and offer the property to that bidder for the amount of the bidder’s highest bid. If this bidder declines to accept the offer, the Clerk/Auditor may then contact the next highest bidder.
The County Commission reserves the right to accept or reject any sale although it is their intent to accept all sales that meet the minimum bid requirement. The Washington County Commission will ratify this sale on June 5th, at its regular scheduled commission meeting.
