State Auditor’s Office handling tax lien sales

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. — The Morgan County Sheriff’s Department is reminding residents that the West Virginia State Auditor’s Office is now responsible for tax lien sales.

The change follows the state Legislature’s approval of related legislation during this year’s regular session.

According to Sheriff K.C. Bohrer, the sheriff’s department will still be responsible for certifying a list of delinquent properties ahead of the real estate tax lien sale in November.

Property owners have until Oct. 31 to pay real estate taxes before the West Virginia State Auditor’s Office takes over the case.
