 Clarion County Tax Claim

 
​​

Clarion County Tax Claim Department is responsible for collecting delinquent real estate taxes and taking payments for real estate taxes when the option of making payments is not available through the tax collector then disperses the monies to the county, municipalities and school districts.

Once property is delinquent for two years, it is advertised and put up for tax sale. If the property is sold, the purchaser is responsible for paying all back taxes associated with the land, as well as any mortgages, judgments and liens for the bidder. If it does not sell, it will be exposed to the judicial sale which is free and clear of back taxes, mortgages, judgments and liens. This office will hold tax sales once a year for properties that are 2 years delinquent on taxes. This is done to recoup lost tax dollars. All records/ files are public information.
