Totals are in from last week’s tax sale held in the Starke County Annex. Two separate sales were conducted. One was a certificate sale and the other was a deed sale. The certificate sale is one in which the original owners might redeem the property by paying the back taxes. A deed sale is one in which the deed is held by the County where the County is attempting to get the property back on the tax rolls.
38 parcels were sold in the certificate sale for $11,400 and 24 parcels were sold on the deed sale for $2,400.
Four of the parcels sold in the certificate sale belong to S.C.P., doing business as the Federal Group in Knox. Owed on those parcels was $93,000 in back taxes. S.P.C. will be able to redeem the property by paying the taxes. The parcels were purchased by the Starke County Development Foundation for $1,400.
