The public auction for the sale of tax-delinquent land in Faulkner County will begin at 1 p.m. May 15 at the Country Inn & Suites, l750 Amity Road in Conway, Commissioner of State Lands John Thurston said in a news release. Registration will begin at 12:30 p.m.

Thurston's office offers an online catalog of tax-delinquent lands, which contains the current statutes governing the sales, auction dates, times, locations and other pertinent information regarding parcels being offered. The catalog can be viewed at www.cosl.org.

“Bidding begins at the amount of taxes and fees that are due,” Thurston said. “Owners of delinquent parcels should remember that they have only 10 business days to redeem their property if it sells at auction.”

Delinquent property owners may call the office at 501-324-9422 to request a Petition to Redeem, or they may look up the delinquent parcel on the COSL website and print it from there.
