The Writ Enforcement Section deputies serve the civil process and enforce executions on civil judgments.  The section also conducts the Dallas County Sheriff’s Official online Tax Sales and the Sheriff’s Sale live auction as required by law.  These sales are conducted on the first Tuesday of every month.

The Dallas County Sheriff’s Department live auction Writ Sheriff’s Sale is held at the Dallas County Records Building, 500 Elm Street, Dallas, Texas, on the 7th floor Multipurpose room, on the first Tuesday of every month. The Dallas County Sheriff’s Office seized the properties by Writ of Execution.
