State Court Relief for Tax Sales Conducted in Violation of the Automatic Stay

Friday, March 30, 2001

The Office of the Cook County Treasurer has informed the Bankruptcy Court that it will undertake to obtain a sale-in-error determination from the State Court with respect to any tax sale conducted after a bankruptcy case was filed by or against the legal or beneficial owner of the property. See 35 ILCS 200/21-310.
Requests should be made to the

Office of the County Treasurer Cook County, Illinois
Attention: Martha A. Mills, Chief Legal Counsel
118 North Clark Street, Room 212
Chicago, IL 60602.

This procedure may be more efficient and less expensive than proceeding to enforce the automatic stay.
