Washington DC's Tax Sale differs from other states and counties by using the first come first served process. There is no auction so if you show up first with the funds, you can purchase any property in their inventory for the specified amount owed. This amount generally represents only delinquencies from the prior tax year, including associated accruals and costs. Other liabilities may be owed and may have to be paid before a tax deed can be issued. A purchaser acts at his or her own risk, and must exercise due diligence in selecting real properties to purchase.
The date of this sale varies from year to year but usually happens in the late fall. This sale is a first come first served sale which runs for several weekdays.
Registration begins when the sale begins. Registration for the sale is mandatory, and purchasers with required documents and payment will be registered in order of arrival time.
