Tax-Forfeited Land Sales

forest

Becker County currently manages approximately 75,000 acres of tax-forfeited land. The majority of these lands have been classified as "conservation" and are retained and managed by the County for forest products, wildlife habitat, watershed protection, and recreation. Parcels classified as "non-conservation" are disposed of through exchange or sale as allowed by Minnesota State Statute 282.

Tax-Forfeited land sales are conducted on an "as needed" basis. All information regarding public land sales will be posted to this website when the information becomes available. If you would prefer to receive a printed notice of the next public land sale, along with a complete listing of the parcels being offered, please send a check for $3.00 with your name and address to:
