Delinquent Tax Payment Options

The Warren County Tax Claim Office accepts real estate tax liens for delinquent county, township / borough, and school districts within the county.

The Warren County Tax Claim Bureau participates in three kinds of sales on a yearly basis to consolidate the seated lands in the county for delinquent taxes. In September, the Bureau will conduct an Upset Sale; this is the first sale that a property must go through. At this sale, properties that are two years delinquent in taxes will be auctioned. As a bidder in this sale, you will be responsible for all past due taxes, liens, mortgages, etc. If the property remains unsold, it will go to the Judicial Sale the following year (generally June). For a Judicial Sale, bid price will start at costs only, property will be sold free and clear (as long as all parties are properly notified), minus ground rent. If the property remains unsold, it will be placed on our Repository List. The Bureau keeps an updated listing of the properties sitting in the repository, to bid on them, you must fill out a bid form. We will then present the highest bid to the three taxing districts for their approval. Property is sold free and clear of past due taxes and liens, minus ground rent.

For more information on the Tax Sales listed above, please see below.
