A public auction for the sale of tax-delinquent land in Carroll County will be held at the Best Western Inn of the Ozarks in Eureka Springs on Tuesday, June 7, at 10 a.m., according to John Thurston, Arkansas Commissioner State Lands. Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m.

The Madison County auction will follow in the same location at 2 p.m. the same day, Thurston said. Registration for the Madison County auction will begin at 1:30 p.m.

The Commissioner of State Lands offers an online catalog of tax delinquent lands, which contains the current statutes governing the sales, auction dates, times, location and other pertinent information regarding parcels being offered. The catalog can be found on the Commissioner's website at, providing current information resources about each parcel.

"Bidding begins at the amount of taxes and fees that are due," Thurston said. "Owners of delinquent parcels should remember that they have only 10 business days to redeem their property if it sells at auction."

Delinquent property owners may call the office at 501-324-9422 to request a Petition to Redeem, or they may look up the delinquent parcel on the COSL website and print it from there.
