With procedure changes resulting from WV Senate Bill 552, tax liens for delinquent 2021 real estate taxes are certified to the WV State Auditor as of November 1.

The post certification report is broken down into two sections: Suspended and Certified to State.

Suspended properties may be a mineral royalty bill or a property which was sold previously at a tax lien sale and is still pending redemption. Please call the tax office for more information on Suspended tickets.

Liens that were Certified to the State should be redeemed through the WV State Auditor's office. Please note that there is a shorter redemption period than in the past. Properties Certified to the State will be subject to sale by the Auditor at 1PM on Monday June 5, 2023 at the Brooke County Courthouse. Please contact the Auditor's office after Decemeber 1, 2022 about redemption.
