Title
Treasurer-Tax Collector's Office recommending the Board adopt Resolution 124-2014 granting approval to sell tax defaulted properties at public auction (via the internet and/or at a County office), noting said sale(s) to be conducted beginning November 7, 2014.

FUNDING: General Fund.
Body
Fiscal Impact/Change to Net County Cost
Revenues to the General Fund are unknown until after the property sale(s) conclude in November. Administrative costs for preparing, mailing and publishing required legal notices are included in the FY 2014-2015 budget. The internet auction is conducted via a third party provider at no extra cost to the County, as certain processing fees are charged to the successful bidder.

Background
Pursuant to Sections 3694 and 3698 of the California Revenue & Taxation (R&T) Code, notice is given of intent to sell at public auction beginning Friday, November 7, 2014, with respect to the properties that are "subject to the power to sell." Chapter 7, Part 6 of Division 1 of the R&T Code provides the Tax Collector with the power to sell property that has been tax defaulted for five or more years. The property list is on file with the Board Clerk's Office.

Reason for Recommendation
Approval of the property list for the public auction, by resolution of the County Board of Supervisors, is required by State law, R&T Code Section 3698.5
