Tax Redemption

En español

Every year on the last Monday of October, the Kane County Treasurer holds its annual tax sale to auction off all unpaid taxes for the current year. Any questions on Tax Sale procedures and delinquent property lists should be addressed to the Kane Treasurer.

If your unpaid taxes have been sold, the Clerk's office can provide you with an Estimate of Redemption, detailing the amount necessary to redeem (pay) your taxes and remove the threat of losing your property.

Redemption can only be made by means of cash, certified funds or money order made payable to the Kane County Clerk. Once the redemption is satisfied a receipt will be issued.

If the property owner fails to pay taxes the next year by the third week in September, the tax buyer who purchased the prior year can purchase the subsequent year at 12% interest.

The property owner has a period of 2 1/2 to 3 years to redeem their property before losing their property. Six(6) months prior to the expiration date, deed proceedings can begin. Any costs incurred in the deed process will be added to the redemption.
