Tax Sale

In April each year the County Sheriff completes his collection efforts and transfers the remaining delinquent taxes to the County Clerk.  Additional penalties and fees are added to each bill and they then become Certificates of Delinquency.  The County Clerk takes collection on the Certificates of Delinquency for at least 90 days after which time the County Clerk has until October 27th to conduct a Tax Sale.  At the Tax Sale Third Party Purchasers may purchase the Certificate of Delinquency if the registration process and fees have been submitted timely.
