Every month, hundreds of properties are auctioned off at Sheriff’ auctions (which is also known as the Constable’s Sale). The collection of property taxes is a huge priority for taxing entities (ie; County, City and School Districts) in every county within the State of Texas. Without the collection of property taxes annually, the taxing authorities would go broke. In Texas, these taxing entities can and will force the sale of the property in order to collect the delinquent taxes owed. The County Sheriff is responsible for selling these properties which is held on the courthouse steps every month.due to either delinquent property taxes or a judgment.
B. Most properties purchased at the Tax Auction are purchased at far below their market value, sometimes as much as 50% off.
