2020 Foreclosure

The Cowlitz County Treasurer’s Office has decided to delay the filing of their 2020 Foreclosure action.

Real property tax accounts with 2017/prior taxes owing as of July 1, 2020, will be subject to a $100.00 Foreclosure Avoidance Fee and will receive a 2nd Notice of Foreclosure.

A Certificate of Delinquency is set to be filed with the Superior Court of Cowlitz County on August 3, 2020, which will initiate the foreclosure proceedings against all real property tax accounts with 2017/prior taxes owing as of that date.

The 2020 Foreclosure Auction is tentatively schedule for February 2021.
