The following timeline describes in general terms the major deadlines involved in the foreclosure process:
July 1st summer taxes and December 1st winter taxes; property taxes billed by and due to the village or township Treasurer.
If your current taxes are not paid by March 1st – unpaid current property taxes are forwarded to the County Treasurer for collection. A 4% administration fee, along with 1% per month interest, is added
On October 1 the County Treasurer adds a $30 fee to each parcel.
March 1: Property is forfeited to county treasurer. County Treasurer adds a $195 fee. Interest increases from 1% per month to 1.5% per month, back to 1st prior year.
