(BEDFORD) - Lawrence County will conduct a tax sale on Wednesday, September 13th for delinquent real estate properties that have taxes and special assessments due from the prior year's spring installment.

Bidding will start at 10 a.m. in the Circuit Court courtroom.

In Indiana, the county treasurer and auditor are required to sell tax liens on delinquent properties.

Lawrence County will offer these tax sale certificates at a public auction for a minimum bid that is no less than the total amount due in delinquent taxes, costs, special assessments and penalties.

"The purpose of the tax sale is to offer these delinquent properties to collect back taxes to help fund local government services," explained County Auditor Jody Edwards.

Paula Stewart, Lawrence County Treasurer, also stated, "There are currently 207 properties available for the tax sale totaling $372,935.59 in delinquencies. Owners have until September 12 to pay everything that is owed.

Lawrence County has contracted with SRI, Inc., an Indianapolis-based company, founded in 1989, that conducts tax sales, commissioners' certificate sales, deed sales and sheriff sales for over 150 counties in Indiana, Michigan, Colorado, Louisiana and Iowa.

Persons interested in registering and bidding at the Lawrence County Tax Sale should visit the SRI, Inc. website at and read the information provided regarding tax sales.
