CLAY COUNTY — The Clay County Collector’s Office is partnering with CivicSource, an online auctions site for tax-distressed real estate, to host community information sessions on how to participate in the upcoming tax sale.

“While traditional tax lien sales require participants to be physically present at the courthouse during an auction, Clay County’s technology-driven auctions take place online,” states a release. “The accessible online auctions allow bidders to conduct property research and participate in the tax sale from any internet-ready device."

Clay County Tax Collector Lydia McEvoy hosted the county’s annual tax sale online with CivicSource for the first time in 2017. More than 150 properties are scheduled to be auctioned this year.

All bidders must register online by 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 21, at to bid in the tax sale on Monday, Aug. 26. For the registration forms and additional tax sale guidelines, visit
