The Yuma County Sheriff’s Office is responsible for the collection of all delinquent, unsecured personal property taxes for Yuma County.
Tax Payment Due Dates

Seizure & Sale of Property for Non-Payment of Taxes

Arizona Revised Statutes (A.R.S.) 42-19108, 42-19109, 42-19110 allows for the seizure and sale of personal property necessary to pay the delinquent taxes, interest, and costs associated with the process. Taxes are considered delinquent and property considered eligible for seizure after the second installment is past due, May 2nd. Seized property will be sold at public auction to the highest bidder to pay taxes owed.

Sale Information

Once property has been seized, and is available for auction, A.R.S. 42-19111 requires notices of sales to be posted within the County. The Yuma County Sheriff’s Office posts notices at the following locations:
