What does 'Tax Title' mean?

Properties offered at the Assessor Treasurer's tax foreclosure auction that did not receive the minimum bid are conveyed to Pierce County and are held in 'tax title' status. Properties authorized for disposal may be purchased.


Tax title parcels are sold 'AS IS' 'WHERE IS' with no warranty. Thorough research by the purchaser is highly recommended.

Current tax title property inventory consists mostly of land which is mainly beneficial to adjacent land owners.

Some properties contain environmentally sensitive areas such as wetlands or steep slopes or have other negative attributes. Some properties may also have assessments and fees that need to be paid after purchase out of tax title status.
