"Redemption" Information

The following information is for real property only. See mobile home tax and tips for tax information related to mobile homes.

A redemption payment is made to the Treasurer for the amount of delinquent taxes, delinquent interest, advertising fees, and any other additional costs incurred during the tax lien process. Payments will only be accepted from the owner, his agent, or any other person having a legal or equitable claim against the property at any time before the execution of a Treasurer's Deed. If an application for a Treasurer's Deed has been accepted, an additional $350.00 is due upon redemption. (See Treasurer's Deed for additional information regarding the deed process.)

All redemption payment must be made in cash or certified funds.

Interest is calculated on a monthly basis. Therefore, the amount due changes monthly. Postmarks are not acceptable for delinquent property payments that have a tax lien.

Upon payment, the Treasurer shall issue a Certificate of Redemption. The Certificate includes the legal description of the tract of land redeemed, the date of redemption, the amount paid, and by whom the redemption payment was received. The certificate will be mailed to the party making payment after it has been recorded with the Clerk and Recorder's Office, generally about a month.
