NORWALK, Conn. -- The city of Norwalk will conduct a tax sale of tax delinquent properties that include everything from boat slips to shopping centers and condominiums on Monday, July 18, in the Norwalk City Hall Concert Hall.

At the time the notices were filed, the auction included: single family residential properties; multi-family residential properties; residential condominium units; commercial / professional condominium units; storage units; garage units; co-op apartments; and commercial properties, including a strip mall; a theatre; an indoor sports arena; restaurants; a social club; manufacturing buildings; an automobile repair / muffler repair facility; retail facilities; commercial / residential buildings; also: non-conforming lots; island property; boat slips (docks); and vacant land.

The tax collector’s office began working on this sale in November and selected more than 131 properties for inclusion in the sale in an effort to collect approximately $3.2 million.

Since notice of sale have been mailed to owners, nearly half have paid their taxes, totaling $2.2 million in tax collections. Currently there are 86 properties for sale. The tax collector anticipates that by the date of the sale, most of the listed properties will be paid in full.

The city’s last tax sale was held in July 2014 and generated more than $5.1 million in tax revenue.

An informational packet describing the tax sale process for potential bidders may be purchased in the tax collector’s office for $25. The packet includes a complete description of the process, instructions for potential bidders, and copies of the relevant state statutes.

Potential bidders are not permitted to trespass on the properties at any time prior to, or after, the tax sale.

The property list and information has been posted on the city of Norwalk web site, at http://my.norwalkct.org/etaxsale/ .
