Real Property Tax Sale

2016 First-Come First-Served Special Deed Tax Sale

The Office of Tax and Revenue (OTR) will be conducting a “First-Come First-Served Special Deed Tax Sale.” OTR will receive offers to buy any of the real properties remaining bid back from the July 2016 Tax Sale and appearing in the link below.

The sale is on a first-come first-served basis, and will begin on Monday, November 14, 2016 and end on Friday, November 18, 2016. The hours are from 8:15 am to 4 pm each day, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays. A purchaser must be registered in order to make an offer to purchase. Full-payment of the purchase price must be received at the time of registration in the form of cash, or certified check, cashier’s check or USPS money order payable to the DC Treasurer.

The sale amount for each property shall be the corresponding amount on the list; this amount generally represents (but not always) delinquencies from Tax Year 2015, including associated accruals and costs. Other liabilities may be owed and may have to be paid before a tax deed can issue. A purchaser acts at his or her own risk, and must exercise due diligence in selecting real properties to purchase.

Registration begins when the sale begins. Registration for the sale is mandatory, and purchasers with required documents and payment (only cash, certified check, cashier’s check, or USPS money order will be accepted) will be registered in order of arrival time based on the time the purchaser signs-in with OTR security, provided that purchaser is actively pursuing completion of the sale and processes the required documents and full payment. Purchasers must come to 1101 4th Street, SW, Suite 550W, to register. At registration, a copy of the purchaser’s Treas. Form W-9 must be submitted together with a Buyer Registration form. Purchasers are also required to have completed Form FR-500, Combined Business Tax Registration Application, prior to or at the time of registering. The Form FR-500 may be found at OTR’s Web site (taxpayerservicecenter.com) under “Tax Forms/Publications.”  

A person with a communication impairment requiring an interpreter for the sale shall notify OTR of the need for an interpreter no later than November 4, 2016. Please contact OTR at (202) 727-4TAX(829) or via email at  taxsale@dc.gov, or visit our Customer Service Center at 1101 4th Street, SW, 2nd Floor, Washington, DC.
