Tax Sale Redemption General Information

Each year when real estate taxes are not paid on time, any unpaid balance due may then be subject to sale to a third party. The Will County Clerk's Office Tax Redemption Department collects payments for the taxes that were sold at the Annual Tax Sale will be held in December this year. The office also collects taxes that are forfeited. Forfeitures are taxes that are held out of the Tax Sale. According to Illinois State Statute, only the total amount due can be accepted. Payment is either by Certified Check, Cashier’s Check or Money Order made payable to the Will County Clerk.

Bankruptcy information and payments are handled through the Will County Treasurer’s Office at (815) 740-4684. The County Clerk’s office handles information on disposed bankruptcies.

If your unpaid taxes have been sold or forfeited, the County Clerk’s office can provide you with a signed and dated Estimate of the Cost of Redemption for $1.00. Please submit a Tax Redemption Document Order Form and the permanent index number (PIN) along with the fee so that one would be mailed to you.
