Take Notices for Tax Sale 2021 – Updated

As a reminder, for the recent tax sale on February 15, 2021, all registered tax buyers are required to produce their own Take Notices as the County Clerk’s office will not be providing the service for this cycle. As we always recommend tax buyers consult with legal counsel. The clerk’s office will date-stamp all copies and return one set to the tax buyer, mail one set certified mail to the addressee, and retain one copy for filing. As the County Clerk’s office is on restricted hours, please be reminded the tax department can receive walk-in customer service between 9 am to 12 noon, and by appointment only after 12 noon. All tax buyers are asked to bring the following to the Clerk’s office:

  • Three (3) copies of the Take Notices. 
  • Three (3) mailing labels per addressee. Each label must include the PIN of the sold taxes to be matched up with the Take Notice.
  • Mailing labels in the same order as the letters is preferred. 
  • Check or money order for the total amount required. Cost of certified mail is $3.60, plus the $0.55 postage, plus $10 per statute. In total, $14.15 per parcel would be required. 
  • Please include the Redemption Fee of $63.00 in your totals

After the letters are received collected, the tax department will implement the $18.15 Legal Notice fee to the redemption amount, and thank you for your cooperation during these difficult times. Feel free to contact our office if you have any further questions
