About the Publication of Unpaid Taxes:
Pursuant to Monroe County Tax Act, the County shall sell at public auction Monday, the 20th day of August, 2012 commencing at 10 A.M. at the County Treasury, Room B-2, County Office Building, in the City of Rochester, a tax sale certificate on each parcel of land as assessed and as hereinafter described, to pay the taxes, interest charges, and expenses thereon at the time of said sale. If necessary, such sale shall continue from day to day until each tax sale certificate shall be sold. NOTE: The Monroe County Legislature has authorized the County Treasurer to purchase all tax sale certificates sold at said sale. The sale will result in transfer of the tax lien, as a legal interest in the property to the County, and NOT the immediate transfer of title to the property. In order to transfer title to the property after completing the sale, the County must wait one year before instituting legal proceedings and then can only institute such proceedings if the tax lien, with any additional charges, is not previously paid. PLEASE DO NOT CONFUSE THE SALE OF THE TAX LIEN WITH THE IMMEDIATE LOSS OF TITLE TO THE PROPERTY.
