RE: Streamlined Tax Certificate Holder Payment through Tax Collector
As part of the Clerk and Comptroller's commitment to efficiency and streamlined processes, this office is pleased to announce that effective January 28, 2019, the Sarasota County Tax Collector will collect statutory fees required to bring a tax certificate to sale, on behalf of the Clerk's office.
A $500 deposit per tax deed application will be collected up front by the Tax Collector. After all fees are applied, any unused portion of the deposit will be refunded upon completion of the tax deed sale.
Should you have any questions, please contact a Tax Deed Clerk at 941-861-7425 or TaxDeedClerk@scgov.net. For more information on the tax deed sale process, including upcoming auction dates, visit the Clerk and Comptroller's Tax Deed Sales webpage.
