Sale on Aug. 27 at Barry County Courthouse

Janice Varner, Barry County collector, will host the annual Barry County land tax sale on Monday, Aug. 27 at 10 a.m. at the courthouse in Cassville.

Anyone interested in purchasing delinquent properties at the land sale needs to come into the collector’s office prior to 10 a.m. on the date of the sale to sign in and obtain a number. Any out-of-state resident desiring to buy land at the sale will need to appoint a Missouri resident as their agent. The agent forms needed for this appointment are available in the collector’s office.

Bidding will begin with the taxes and cost against the property as advertised, and properties will be sold to the highest bidder.

Copies of the parcels that will be auctioned are available online at or in the collector’s office. Barry County Assessor Sherry Smith has compiled books with the parcels for sale and these books can be purchased at either the collector’s or assessor’s office.
