Whatcom County Washington Tax Sale


In Washington, the County Tax Collector will sell Tax Deeds to winning bidders at the Whatcom County Tax Deeds sale. Generally, the minimum bid at an Whatcom 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.
