Tax Deeds

In Compliance with the following State of Florida Executive Orders: 20-51 Establishing Response Protocol, 20-52 declaring a Public Health Emergency, 20-69 in regards to Local Government Public Meetings and also Dixie County Emergency Declaration 2020-27.

The Clerk of Court Office has chosen to cancel the Tax Deed Auction scheduled for:
April 28, 2020

Our first concern is public health and safety. To conduct an “in-person” auction would not only subject our office staff and the public to risk of exposure and or contraction, but will likely violate the rules against mass gatherings which are becoming more common across the state.

Another reason for cancelling “in-person” auctions is economic in nature. When a judicial sale occurs, there is an obligation of the Clerk to ensure the property is sold in a way that will garner the maximum sales price.

The Tax Deed Sale will be re scheduled as soon as possible.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact our office anytime at 352-498-1200 or refer to our website for more information dixieclerk.com. Thank you in advance for your time and immediate attention in this matter.

Sincerely,
Dana D. Cannon
Clerk of Courts & Comptroller
