Once taxes become delinquent, cashier's check, money order, cash or credit card are the only acceptable forms of payment. The date the payment is received in the office determines the amount due. Florida Statutes require the Tax Collector to advertise the delinquent parcels in a local newspaper once a week for three weeks prior to the sale of a tax certificate. The Board of County Commissioners awards the advertisement job to the local newspaper with the lowest job bid. Advertising cost is added to the delinquent taxpayer's bill. Beginning on or before June 1st, the Tax Collector is required by law to hold a Tax Certificate Sale. The certificates represent liens on all unpaid real estate properties.

Beginning with the sale of 2007, the sales are now conducted 'online'. Bidders will register online, submitting the following information: -Name(s) in which the certificates will be issued. -Mailing address -E-Mail address -Phone number -Social Security number -Federal ID Number. Each bidder must make a deposit of 10% of what they intend to spend.
