The public auction for the sale of tax delinquent land in Jefferson County will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday, May 30, at the Pine Bluff Convention Center Banquet Hall 1.


Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m., according to a news release from the Arkansas Commissioner of State Lands.


“Bidding begins at the amount of taxes and fees that are due,” Commissioner John Thurston said. “Owners of delinquent parcels should remember that they have only 10 business days to redeem their property if it sells at auction.”


The commissioner’s office offers an online Catalog of Tax Delinquent Lands, which contains the current statutes governing the sales, auction dates, times, location and other information about parcels of land being offered for sale.


The catalog is available at www.cosl.org. Delinquent property owners may call the commissioner’s office at 501-324-9422 to request a Petition to Redeem or they may look up the delinquent parcel on the COSL website and print it from there.
