How do I extend the last date to redeem?
Send a written authorization (e-mail is fine) to the County Clerk’s Office, giving the PIN and the date to extend it to. The last date to redeem cannot be extended once it has already passed, unless a Petition for Tax Deed has been filed with the Circuit Court (see #5 below.)
