In re Application of the County Treasurer

Illinois Appellate Court
Civil Court
Tax Deeds
Case Number: 
2013 IL App (3d) 120999
Decision Date: 
Wednesday, October 16, 2013
3d Dist.
Will Co.
Affirmed in part and reversed in part; remanded with directions.
Title company filed Section 2-1401 petition to declare tax deed void. Trial court correctly ruled that title company had standing to collaterally attacking tax deed, and properly granted petition to void tax deed, as deed was procured through fraud given that purchaser was aware of problems with its Section 22-5 take notice and misrepresented that it had complied with notice requirements. Listing of an erroneous redemption date in a legal notice does not set the redemption date for purpose of when an extension must be requested or a tax deed recorded. (McDADE and O'BRIEN, concurring.)
