What is a Tax Sale?
A Tax Sale is the public auction of any real property with taxes that have been delinquent for four years from the final tax payment deadline (five years including the delinquent year). Any property not redeemed by March 15th following the four years from the date when the property tax became delinquent will be included in the annual real property Tax Sale held in May or June.
The Tax Sale listing will be available in the Clerk/Auditor Office and on the Internet four weeks immediately preceding the date of the Tax Sale and is updated weekly.

What newspaper is the Tax Sale advertised in?
The Tax Sale is advertised in the Ogden Standard Examiner four times, once in each of the four successive weeks immediately preceding the date of the Tax Sale.
Delinquent property may be redeemed on behalf of the recorded owner by any person at any time prior to the final Tax Sale. All property redeemed within three weeks prior to the Tax Sale must be redeemed through the County Treasurer in a form of cash or bank certified funds. A person redeeming the delinquent property must pay to the Treasurer the total delinquent amount including taxes, interest, penalties and administrative costs.
How do I register for the Tax Sale?
You may register as a bidder for the Tax Sale the morning of the Tax Sale by filling out a “Bidder Registration” form. You will be issued a bidder number that you will use for bidding at the Tax Sale.
What form of payment is accepted? Is a financing plan available?
The successful bidder on a parcel must pay the full amount to the Weber County Treasurer in cash or with bank certified funds. If the amount of the sale is less than $2,000, the Treasurer may accept a personal check as a deposit at the time of the Tax Sale with the understanding that cash or bank certified funds for the entire amount of the sale will be paid to the County Treasurer by 5 p.m. on the day of the sale. If the amount of the sale exceeds $2,000, the successful bidder must pay a non-refundable deposit of $1,000 cash or bank certified funds on the day of the sale, with the balance due and payable to the County Treasurer by May 30, 2014 at 5 p.m. There is no financing available through Weber County.
