2018 Sealed Bid Auction Press Release
August 1, 2018 The following items have been removed from the August 10, 2018 Sealed Bid Auction:
Toulon, IL – Stark County, as Trustee, has completed their tax deed proceedings on real estate properties that were delinquent for 2014 and prior real estate taxes. The County, as Trustee, will now offer for sale the real estate obtained to the public. They will offer approximately 5 items through a sealed bid auction sale. All sealed bids must be in the Stark County Treasurer’s Office located in the Stark County Courthouse, 130 W Main St, PO Box 309, Toulon, Illinois 61483 no later than the close of business on August 10, 2018.
The sale of these lots should be a major benefit to both the Taxing Districts and the neighboring property owners. This sale will place the properties into the hands of individuals who have an interest in owning them. The County, as Trustee, hopes that these new owners will both maintain the property and keep the real estate taxes paid. By eliminating abandoned properties, the appearance of the neighborhood should improve and the value of adjoining properties should increase.
The required minimum bid is just $811.00 per item. All items will be sold to the highest sealed bid received on or before August 10, 2018. Complete bidder’s packets and sale catalogs are now available at the Stark County Treasurer’s Office or online at www.iltaxsale.com.

Duties of the Treasurer
The Office of the County Treasurer serves dual functions as treasurer and as collector of County funds. The County Treasurer has the responsibility to receive, invest, and safely keep the tax revenues and other public monies of the County. The Treasurer disburses County revenues as authorized by law or by the County Board. The County Treasurer prepares bills and receipts for the purpose of tax collection. The Treasurer collects tax revenues for all taxing districts within the County. The County Treasurer sends out approximately 6,000 property tax bills each year and collects nearly $10,000,000, which is distributed to 49 taxing districts. Annual tax bills are customarily mailed in early May and are due in June and in September.
Tax Bill Payments
Tax bills have two stubs on the bottom for the first installment and the second installment, which include the due dates for each installment. Tax bill payments must be accompanied by the proper payment stub. Tax bill payments may be made in person at the County Collector’s office during regular office hours, by mail (payable to Stark County Collector) (DO NOT SEND CASH), in the drop-box behind the courthouse, and at participating banks located in Toulon, Wyoming, Bradford, Speer. Payments made after the second due date must be directed to the County Collector’s Office, banks will not accept late payments. Payment is void if check fails to clear and a charge of $25.00 will be added for all returned checks. Illinois law provides that all taxes not paid by due date shall have interest added at the rate of 1½% per month or part of month, until paid. The County Treasurer must report on the status of delinquent property taxes in local newspapers. Advertising costs at the rate of $10.00 per parcel will be added after publication of delinquent taxes. If tax remains unpaid, application will then be made to the County Circuit Court for judgment and order of sale against the property. The annual sale for delinquent tax bills occurs in late October or early November.
