The county tax sale is held the second Monday in June each year in each county in the state of Oklahoma, where taxes are a lien upon real property and have been unpaid for a period of three years or more.
The Treasurer receives, manages, and invests all revenue received by and for County Government. These revenues include real estate taxes, business personal property taxes, public service taxes(utilities), fire district revenues, Oklahoma Tax Commission payments and various other sources of revenue. Our primary responsibility is to collect taxes certified by the County Assessor from the assessment valuations placed on real estate and personal property in the county.
The Treasurer mails tax statements, collects property taxes and apportions the taxes to the taxing jurisdictions. (school districts, cities, towns, the county, special districts, etc.) This money is apportioned and disbursed according to budgets approved by the County Excise Board.
The Treasurer manages the county's cash flow and is custodian for the bank accounts held by the county. In addition, the Treasurer registers all warrants and vouchers (a.k.a. checks) for the various county departments once the availability of funds has been verified.
All special assessments such as mowing, cleaning and nuisance abatement charges that are assessed by the cities and towns within the county are certified to the Treasurer. They are to be placed as a lien on the property and collected in the same manner as taxes. Once collected, the money is remitted to the city or town holding the lien.
The Treasurer also manages the liquidation of county owned properties and conducts annual tax sales of delinquent properties.
