At the end of the Delinquent Tax Certificate Sale, any tax certificate not bought will be bought by the Columbia County Board of County Commissioners. These certificates earn 18% interest for the life of the certificate. These County held certificates can be purchased by registering at our online certificate sale website, www.columbiataxsale.com. The purchase price is the amount of the original certificate plus interest due to the date of purchase, plus $6.25 purchase fee. This purchase price will become the new face amount of the certificate at the time of purchase. Certificate buyers need to remember that there is risk in investing; these certificates are not risk free.
To purchase a county held certificate you must be registered at www.columbiataxsale.com. All certificates are sold through this website. Once registered you will have access to all of the county held certificates that we currently have available to be purchased.
