If a property within the District of Sechelt has delinquent taxes owing against it, the District will begin proceedings to recover those costs through its annual tax sale. The tax sale is a public auction held each year on the last Monday of September. At the time of a tax sale a list of all properties for auction is available from the District.
By statute, a Collector of a municipality must offer for sale properties that have delinquent taxes outstanding. Taxes are considered to be delinquent if they are unpaid for three years.
