A recent online auction of tax-forfeited properties in Madison County garnered 257 bids on 136 parcels, mostly in the City of Canton. Winning bids totaled $29,095.75, which will be distributed to schools, the city, and the county.

Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann launched online auctions in July 2016 to streamline the purchase of properties forfeited to the State for non-payment of ad valorem taxes.
