Tax Forfeiture

Tax-Forfeited Parcels


Tax-forfeited parcels are properties on which delinquent property taxes were not paid, title to the land and buildings was forfeited, and title is now vested in the State of Minnesota. Following a review period and in accordance with Minnesota State law, these properties are classified and open to the public to purchase.

All property is sold as is and may not conform to local building and zoning ordinances.

The county makes no warranty that the land is suitable for building. All sales are final, and no refunds or exchanges are permitted. We highly recommend that you thoroughly research any tax-forfeited parcels before purchase.
