City’s tax sale set for June 6

Published 4:18 am Wednesday, June 5, 2019

On Thursday, June 6, the city of Bogalusa will host its annual tax sale online at

The auction will open at 8 a.m. and will close at 8 p.m., subject to a sliding close. Over 70 properties are slated for auction, ranging from $314 to $1,688. The sale is open to the public, and registration is free.

The auction price is fixed at tax, interest, costs and other impositions due, so instead of competitive price bidding, ownership interest in property is bid down. The winning bid is the least percent ownership bid on any property.

Winning bidders receive tax title certificates, an interest-bearing investment returning five percent and one percent per month until paid. If not repaid within three years, the purchaser receives property ownership in the amount equal to percent bid at auction, subject to the taxes being paid.
