The sale will be held at the Official Tax Lien Auction Site.
The sale starts at 7:00 am Arizona time and continues until all parcels are offered (approximately six hours).
The list will be published in a county newspaper approximately two weeks before the sale. It can also be found at Arizona Public Notices as well as on our website Published Lien List.
You must be registered in order to bid.
During the February online auction, all registration is handled through the RealAuction website.
After the auction is over, any tax liens that were not purchased become state-held liens. Those are available for purchase "over the counter." If you have not registered with RealAuction or our office previously, you can then register manually by filling out the investor detail and W9 forms found at Treasurer Forms.

For "over the counter" purchases, payment is due upon sale.
The tax lien certificate process is paperless, so certificates are no longer printed. You will receive official emails from RealAuction with your purchase dates. Upon request, investor reports can be provided which have certificate numbers and purchase dates on them.
Tax liens are available for purchase over the counter between March 1st and December 31st each year. These purchases will have additional fees included that are not interest-earning and nonrefundable. Our books for selling CPs (certificates of purchase) are closed from January 1st through the last business day in February. No new purchase or subsequent tax payments will be accepted during this time.
Tax lien investors can initiate foreclosure proceedings three years from the date of the tax lien sale. The Treasurer's Office cannot provide legal advice; we recommend tax lien investors hire an attorney to facilitate and guide them through the foreclosure process. The attorney will give you the cost and time involved. A Judgment Deed is an insurable deed. The fee for issuance of a Judgment Deed is $50 per parcel. We no longer issue Treasurer's Deeds as of December 31, 2003.
Yes. The sale is conducted by the Navajo County Board of Supervisors. You may find more information on their website or by calling 928-524-4053.
Subsequent taxes, or subtaxes, may be purchased by the current investor starting June 1 of the year the taxes go delinquent through December 31st of that year.
No, we cannot accept partial payments for the redemption of tax liens. If a tax lien has been sold on your property, all delinquent taxes, interest, penalties, and fees must be paid in full according to state law.
Certified funds are monies that are guaranteed by the bank. This includes cash, cashier's checks, and money orders. Certified funds are necessary when the tax payment required is for the redemption or purchase of a tax lien.
