Boone County’s current sealed bid auction of surplus property ends on September 13,  2019.

  • Parcels for sale have unpaid taxes for one or more years.  Those parcels were sold at tax sale and were not redeemed within the 2 1/2 year redemption period.  Owners of record have been notified through multiple certified letters, publication and sheriff’s service, and the county as trustee for the taxing districts has obtained a court order for tax deed.
  • Buyers will receive a quitclaim deed and seller will pay to record that deed.  Buyers will not be responsible for delinquent taxes but will be responsible for real estate taxes accruing after their deed is recorded.
  • Minimum bid is $797 per parcel.

For complete terms and conditions and for further information, go to www.iltaxsale.com or call the Boone County Tax Agent at 800-248-2850.  Catalogs are available for download at the above web site for $5.00.  Printed catalogs are available in the Boone County Treasurer’s Office for $8.00.

As with any purchase of real estate, we highly recommend that you retain the services of a real estate attorney for assistance in purchasing surplus property.
