The Grays Harbor County Department of Forestry and Tax Title Management maintains
files pertaining to tax title parcels, however, the County Treasurer is the only person authorized
to sell any County-owned parcel.
A tax title sale is separate from and should not be confused with the annual tax
foreclosure sale held in December.
