Niagara County to Auction Over 50 Tax Defaulted Properties




Niagara County will hold its annual Tax Foreclosure Real Property Live Auction on Saturday, August 13.

The auction will take place at the Shawnee Fire Hall at 3747 Lockport Road, Sanborn New York at 10:00 am. Registration will open at 8:00 am, and the auction will continue until all properties are sold.

Tax-defaulted property auctions help the county recoup lost tax revenues needed for public services and return property to the tax rolls.
