The 2021 tax sale list for the August 23th Tax Sale will be available on July 27th.  The list will change as taxes get paid before the sale. So you may want to call the Collectors' office before the sale to be sure of what will sell that day.

You must preregister in the Collector's office before the day of the sale to bid on a property.  A copy of your driver's license is required and you must sign a affidavit stating all taxes are paid. You must be a resident of Missouri, OR non residents must appoint a COUNTY citizen to act as their agent.  Please be sure to print out and read the Tax Sale General Information as some tax sale laws may have changed.  The affidavit is avalable to print out on this website also.

Buyer Beware: Be sure to know what you are buying: Location & Condition.  Please understand you are NOT purchasing the Real Estate, but you are purchasing a Delinquent Tax Sale Certificate. You have no rights to the property until you are issued the Collectors Deed.  You can now locate a parcel using the Hickory County GIS maping system.  Look on the home page for more information or go to and put the parcel number in the search box. (numbers only).  This will help you locate the parcel.  Please note you must not trespass on any of the tax sale properties.  The owner still has all rights to the property.
