Tax Sales are held to help collect unpaid taxes. The Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kansas holds three public auctions per year to sell property that is eligible for the Tax Sale.

Tax sale eligible properties are those that have delinquent taxes for at least 3 years for homestead properties, 2 years for commercial properties and 1 year for vacant and abandoned properties. Tax delinquency is an early sign of property deterioration. Ensuring that properties are current on taxes is an example of how we can improve the appearance of our neighborhoods.

We have provided some information that will assist you with either buying a home at the Tax Sale or how to prevent your home from being sold at the Tax Sale.

The next Tax Sale will be held on June 3rd, 2021 - Tax Sale #348 This will be an online auction. There is a two step registration process for the online auction. Please refer to our Bidder Info & Registration page for the full details. 

All bidders must pre-register to participate. Bidders must be registered no less than two days before the sale.
