Subsequent Tax (Sub-Tax) Payment Information
to Illinois Compiled Statutes (Ch. 200/21-355), tax buyers may pay subsequent
years’ unpaid 2018 taxes (sub-tax) on any parcels they have purchased at a
previous DuPage County tax sale and add the tax amount to their sale
certificate. Statutorily, we may only accept sub-tax payments (1) after the
second installment becomes delinquent or (2) after the holder of the certificate
of purchase has filed a petition for tax deed with the Court. The first
date sub-tax payments will be accepted is September 11, 2019, no later than 3 p.m. If filing a
petition for tax deed, the first date sub-tax payments will be accepted is May 8, 2019.
This office will not produce subsequent tax bills. It
is now the responsibility of the tax buyer to print copies of the bill. The cost
to have this office produce copies of the bill will be $5.00 per bill. You can print
copies of the bill via the Property Info portal. Please note the
indemnity fee will not be listed on the bill. The $20.00 indemnity fee is
required to be added to each property index number being paid.
It is the
tax buyer’s responsibility to check for current tax payments and check for prior
year redemptions on each property index number before submitting a sub-tax
payment. Select and total the bills you wish to pay. Submit the bills with your
check. A separate check will be required for each buyer code. It is the
responsibility of the tax buyer to insure the sub-tax payment is posted by the
DuPage County Clerk's office. Please contact the Clerk's office at
630-407-5500 for more information. A sub-tax payment will be refunded if it
duplicates a prior payment, including another tax buyer’s sub-tax payment. Date
and time of receipt will always determine the priority of sub-tax payments.
The date that your sub-tax payment is received in our office will be used for
computing penalty. On the first of each month, additional penalty of 1.5% per
installment must be added to your payment. Sub-tax payments made after October
31, 2019 will require a cashier's check, money order or cash.
