What does Tax Defaulted mean?

Tax Defaulted means there is a delinquent tax against the property. Tehama County Tax collector's office prepares an annual list of property which is "tax defaulted" at the end of the fiscal year (June 30th). This list is published in the Red Bluff Daily News on or about the first week in September of the following year.

If the "Tax Defaulted" notation is printed on your bill, it is an indication that the Tax Collector shows delinquent taxes for a prior year. Five years after the first year of delinquency, the property will be eligible for sale at public auction, and will be subsequently sold if the taxes are not paid.
