Wilson County will conduct a delinquent tax sale Saturday, August 13, 2016, at 10 a.m. in the Chancery Courtroom at the Wilson County Judicial Center located at 134 South College Street in Lebanon.
Potential buyers are encouraged to arrive on time to hear about the terms of a tax sale. Back Tax Attorney Bob Rochelle will warn that this is a Buyer Beware sale where the buyer takes more risk than if buying from an individual or through a Realtor.
Potential purchasers are encouraged to thoroughly investigate the parcels before the sale.
The County will sell 23 parcels. A list of the parcels slated for sale may be obtained from the Office of the Clerk and Master. A complete list of the parcels to be sold will be published in The Wilson Post in its Friday editions until the sale date.
"There may be parcels paid before the sale date. Of course, they will be dropped from the sale," Rochelle said. "Prospective purchasers should make their own inquiry into the state of the title and condition of each parcel."
The sale is part of the continuing effort by Wilson County and the cities of Lebanon, Mt. Juliet and Watertown to reduce the amount of delinquent taxes owed.
