Polk County Wisconsin Tax Sale


In Wisconsin, the County Tax Collector will sell Tax Deeds to winning bidders at the Polk County Tax Deeds sale. Generally, the minimum bid at an Polk County Tax Deeds sale is the amount of back taxes owed plus interest, as well as any and all costs associated with selling the property.

According to state law, the sale of Wisconsin Tax Deeds are final and the winning bidder is conveyed either a Tax Deed or a Sheriff's Deed. The purchaser of a tax deed may transfer title through a quitclaim deed but would need a quiet title action to sell the property with a Warranty Deed (given that a Tax Deed, Sheriff's Deed, or quitclaim deed are insufficient to acquire title insurance).

Properties not sold at the Polk County Tax Deeds sale are transferred to Polk County.
