Steuben Co, Having An Online Property Auction This Year

May 31, 2022

BATH, NY – Some 113 parcels will be up for bid June 15-22 during the online-only Steuben County Delinquent Real Property Tax Auction. County legislators approved the dates for the auction during their regular session Monday. Establishing the annual auction has been complicated during recent years by restrictions still surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, court issues and the challenge of locating a physical site. Steuben officials maintain the purpose of the county auction is to recover back taxes and put the properties back on the tax rolls, not to seize property. The County has long provided ways for delinquent property owners to recover their property prior to the point of foreclosure sale.
