Possible online services disruption due to Internet related outage

A worldwide technology outage is causing disruption to some State of Illinois online systems.  We are aware of this issue and are diligently working on restoration.

Tax Lien Registry

​The State Tax Lien Registry was created in accordance with Public Act 100-22 which created the State Tax Lien Registration Act. The State Tax Lien Registry is an online, statewide system for maintaining notices of tax liens filed or released that are enforced by the Illinois Department of Revenue (IDOR). The liens included in the State Tax Lien Registry are liens filed by IDOR or the Department of Employment Security on the real property and personal property, tangible and intangible, of taxpayers, other people, or entities in accordance with the law for unpaid final liabilities.

Please be aware the State Tax Lien Registry contains no information regarding property tax sales or redemptions. Furthermore, the Illinois Department of Revenue does not sell rights to the tax liens in the State Tax Lien Registry for collection purposes. NOTE: This subscription is NOT a list of properties to be sold at auction.
