Can I get reimbursed for expenses?
Certain costs can be posted to the redemption account by submitting paid receipts (copies are acceptable) to the County Clerk’s Office; however, no charges can be posted within one month of the final date to redeem. To see what charges can be posted, please read 35 ILCS 200/21-355.
