What type of deed does the Property Tax Division issue for property sold at tax sales?

The purchase price of a property acquired at auction does not dictate its value. The county assessor has already determined a taxable value based on the appraisal analysis of similar properties in the area. Before buying at auction the prospective bidder should assess the value by consulting the county assessor’s office and talking to realtors and owners of property bordering the piece to be sold.
