Bidding Rules

Bidding Rules - 2017 Flagler County Tax Lien Auction

If you are new to Realauction tax lien auction websites, we recommend you proceed in the following fashion: 

  1. Familiarize yourself with the laws that regulate tax sales in this state. If you are unfamiliar with the statutes governing tax liens in the state of Florida, read the “Tax Certificate Process” document located at the left of the home page. It is a plain English summary of the law which will take only minutes to read.

  2. Review this County's auction settings.  See the Summary of Important Dates and Information below.

  3. Register. You will be prompted to create your own Username and Password as part of the process.

  4. Bidding process:
    • Decide how much money you want to invest in tax certificates for this auction. ($10,000 for example)
    • Enter that amount as your budget.
    • Bid on as many certificates as you would like. Your budget will limit how much you can win no matter how many bids you place. As soon as you win tax certificates that equal the amount of your budget, all other bids you placed are cancelled.
    • In Flagler County, winning bidder accounts will not automatically rollup to the primary bidder at the close of the auction. All certificates will be issued in the name "as shown on tax return" for the winning bidder account. To transfer certificates to another buyer you must submit a completed, notarized endorsement form, along with a transfer fee of $2.25 per certificate, to the Tax Collector's office.

  5. Pay for your winnings.  The Tax Collector shall provide written or electronic notice when certificates are ready for issuance. Payment must be made within 48 hours after the transmission of the electronic notice.

    A person who fails or refuses to pay any bid made by, or on behalf of, such person is not entitled to bid or have any other bid accepted except as authorized by the Tax Collector.
