Madison County Tax Sale 2010

I, Kay Pace, Tax Collector of the County of Madison, in said State, will sell on the Fifth Monday of August, A.D., at the Board of Supervisor's Room, Second Floor, 146 West Center St.  In said state, in the City of Canton, State of Mississippi, to the highest bidder or bidders, for cash, if any there be, all the following described land situated in said County, on which taxes remain unpaid at that date, to wit:
The 2010 Tax Sale will be held 9 A.M., Monday, August 30, at the Madison County Office Building, Canton.

So, Friday, 5 P.M., Aug 27 is the last opportunity to pay 2009 property taxes and avoid additional fees, penalities and interest payments.

As of 5 P.M., Friday, Aug 20, 2010, there are 2,900 parcels with unpaid taxes and special assessments equaling approximately $4.4 million.  A comma separated variable (CSV) file can be downloaded at the Tax Collectors web site

I've converted the csv parcel listing to an Excel spreadsheet (xls) file format which can be download by clicking here. This file can be searched by owner name, subdivision name, etc.

Remember that tax notices are sent to the owner as of Jan 1, 2009; so, it someone bought a property in 2009 the tax bills may have been mailed and forwarded to the previous owner.

The Tax Sale is conducted as a regular auction with "over-bidding." So, many parcels sell for more than the applicable taxes, etc.  Depending on the number of parcels, the sale can last for more than 2 days.

2009 Madison County Tax Calculator

I've developed an Excel Spreadsheet program to allow you calculate and compare estimated taxes based on where you live, school district, and appraised value. It shows regular homestead exemption, over 65 special homestead exemption, and taxes when there is no homestead exemption. IT DOES NOT INCLUDE FIRE and DRAINAGE DISTRICTS; and SPECIAL ASSESSMENTS.

The spreadsheet contains links to extensive on-line resources and information.
