Ind. Gov't. - "Lake County officials promote new online tax sale"

Bill Dolan reported last week in the NWI Times:

CROWN POINT | Lake County Treasurer John Petalas and Auditor Peggy Katona are urging the public to get online for their upcoming tax sale.

Indianapolis-based SRI will hold the first Internet auction of tax delinquent properties for the treasurer's office during 10 days beginning Friday.

Petalas said the public can bid on any of the approximately 18,000 real estate parcels by logging into the SRI website at www.sri-auctionsonline.com. A total of $97 million in back taxes is owed on the properties, he said.

The online auction replaces a traditional sale where bidders have to be present in the Lake County Government Complex auditorium for hours as the auctioneer goes one by one through each property.

Here is the relevant SRI tax sale webpage and information about online auctions.
