When will my property go to tax sale?

When a property is delinquent three (3) years, it enters into the "Tax Deed" process. Typically, in May of each year, Kootenai County Tax Collector identifies all real properties that are three (3) years delinquent and generates a "Pending Issue of Tax Deed" letter to the recorded owner of those properties. This is their notice to either satisfy the most delinquent year (s) to bring the property to a minimum of two (2) years delinquent or have the property tax deeded to Kootenai County's name. The tax payer must pay the third-year delinquency in full to stop the Tax Deed Process. Partial payments will be accepted and applied at any time but will not stop the Tax Deed action until the third year delinquency is paid in full. See Idaho Code 63-1003 and 63-1005
