Kootenai County Tax Deed Sale Auction Moves Online

Kootenai County is going online with their 2022 Tax Deed Sale Auction. Starting with the September 2022 sale, the County’s online auction will be hosted by Realauction.com. 

In preparation for our upcoming Tax Deed Sale on Friday September 30, 2022 Realauction.com will host a 2nd Bidder Training Webinar Class next Thursday September 22, 2022 at Noon (PT).  Must register for training attendance or by phone at 877-361-7325.

Kootenai County Treasurer Steve Matheson stated: “Anyone attending previous auctions know the excitement and long tradition of Kootenai County’s tax deed sale and we expect some disappointment with this decision to go online. We will evaluate the success of this year’s online auction and feedback from the community when making a decision about next year’s format.” A free bidder training class will be held on Thursday, September 15th at 12pm PT during which Realauction.com will assist bidders with registration questions as well as training on the navigation of the site. Information for a second bidder training class will be updated on our website once the date and time are established. The auction will be held on Friday, September 30th, 2022 at 10am PT.
