Tax Foreclosure sales

The Columbia County Attorney’s Office handles Tax Foreclosures for the County of Columbia.

Properties acquired through Tax Foreclosure are offered for sale by sealed bid.

We do NOT have a tax sale scheduled at this time. We are hoping to put together a sale sometime in 2022. Please sign up for our tax foreclosure mailing list to receive updates.
