Tax Sale Overview:


If Hamblen county, Tennessee is unable to collect real estate property taxes they are also unable to provide important government services like police protection, public schooling and medical services.

Unpaid property taxes create a serious cashflow problem for Hamblen county, Tennessee.

Property taxes that are delinquent are added to any previously uncollected taxes on a parcel of Hamblen county. Parcels whose taxes are subject to sale will be advertised in a Hamblen county newspaper of general circulation. They are listed by sequence number. Parcels fall into 1 of 2 groups. Each group is sorted by parcel number.

The advertisement appears about three to six weeks before the Hamblen county tax sale auction and is also posted on the Internet.
