Double Payments

  • All payments are considered voluntary.  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 $0.20 per parcel.  This should eliminate Double Payments.  Non participation in AutoAgent 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. voluntarily.
  • The policy that the Lake County Treasurer’s office follows is that it will NOT allow us to remove a payment without having another check to replace it.
  • Refunds/Double Payments are researched on a case by case basis. 
  • Please contact our office at 847.377.2323 or email us at for further information.
