I am refinancing my home. Although the loan is in my name

Customer Question

I am refinancing my home. Although the loan is in my name only, one of the title holders has an Illinois tax lien which prevents clearing title. I am willing to pay the taxes, it is less than $1000, but how do I do this and get the released quickly? Thanks.

Hi

I'm Anne & I've been preparing taxes for 28 years. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

I apologize for the delay in answering.....we lost our power, but I have no idea why. At any rate, it's back on now.

Once you pay your debt, it's imperative to receive a "letter of satisfaction" from the bank or person you owed money to. The lien will not be removed from your record until it has been filed and recorded as "satisfied" with the county clerk. Bring your letter of satisfaction with the legal definition of your property (found on your most recent tax bill) and make sure your lien is removed. Once that is complete, make sure to send copies as proof to the three major credit reporting agencies.
