Double Payments

  • All payments are considered voluntary. In most cases, these monies have already been distributed to the taxing districts.
  • If you are from a lending institution or title company, it is now mandatory for you to sign up for Auto Agent. The cost for using this software is up to $0.25 per parcel. This should eliminate Double Payments. Non participation in Auto Agent may waive your right for refunds.
  • Refunds can only be obtained when sufficient documentation (a written release and proof of payment) are submitted from both payers.
  • The Lake County Treasurer follows the policy that no payment will be removed without having an equal payment to replace it.
  • Refunds/Double Payments are researched on a case by case basis.
