The Douglas County Treasurer’s office conducts Tax sales/Trustee auctions each year as needed. The dates, time and parcel descriptions are posted to our website (on Tax Sales page).
The Tax sale is advertised for 20 consecutive days prior to the auction date. The list is published in the Record Courier which is our newspaper of local circulation. The list will also be posted to our website on the Tax Sales page.

A list of all properties to be sold by the Douglas County Trustee is available on our website at http://cltr.douglascountynv.net/2014 Tax Sale.pdf approximately 20 days prior to the sale.

Publication of the final list will begin 20 days prior to the date of the sale in a newspaper of local circulation, the Record Courier.
The properties are located throughout Douglas County and are sold “AS IS”. The County does not investigate the properties prior to the sale and in no way assumes any responsibility, implied or otherwise, that the properties are in compliance or conformed with zoning ordinances or conforms to building codes and permits. The County encourages you to research thoroughly the property you are buying. The County does not guarantee a clear title. Caution: investigate before you bid.

If the prior owner collects the remainderment on the property their claim is void and the title company will issue title insurance with verification from the Treasurer’s office.
