A: In Oklahoma, the county treasurer is generally required to notify the property owner before selling the property at a tax auction. This usually involves sending a written notice to the last known address of the property owner, as well as any other parties who may have a legal interest in the property. The notice typically provides information about the tax debt, the auction process, and the timeframe within which the owner must act to prevent the sale.

The notification is intended to give the owner a chance to pay the owed property taxes and any additional fees to avoid the property being sold. Failure to pay within the stipulated period would then result in the property being auctioned off to settle the tax debt.
