How do I know if the taxes have been redeemed?
If you need to know immediately, you can go to Lake Sold Taxes website to generate an Estimate of Redemption. If one is generated for that PIN, the taxes have not been redeemed. Otherwise you’ll get a message, “No record found for PIN XX-XX-XXX-XXX. If this PIN is correct, there are no sold taxes currently owed on this property.” On the 1st and 15th of each month, the County Clerk’s office sends out a Tax Buyer Redemption Report listing any property of yours that has been redeemed. If you do not get a report, there are no redeemed properties awaiting tax buyer payout. For more information, visit the Lake Sold Taxes website.
