Lee County, as Trustee, has completed their tax deed proceedings on real estate properties that were delinquent for 2015 and prior real estate taxes. The County, as Trustee, will now offer for sale the real estate obtained to the public. They will offer 37 items through a sealed bid auction sale. All sealed bids must be in the Lee County Treasurer's Office located in the Lee County Courthouse, 112 E. 2nd Street, Dixon, Illinois 61021 no later than the close of business on July 12, 2019.


Properties sold will be subject to the 2020 real estate taxes. Purchasers of these parcels will not have to pay real estate taxes until the summer of 2021.


Many current lot owners, friends and relatives will benefit from this rare opportunity. We

anticipate that the sale of these lots will be a major benefit to all property owners. These sales will place the properties into the hands of individuals who have an interest in the development and the surrounding area.

Lee County, as Trustee, hopes the future owners will maintain the property, pay the required future Woodhaven Lake Association Assessments, and future real estate taxes.


By eliminating abandoned properties, the appearance of the neighborhoods should improve and the value of adjoining properties should increase.


The required minimum bid is just $816.00 per item. All items will be sold to the highest sealed bid received on or before July 12, 2019. Complete bidder's packets and sale catalogs are now available at the Lee County Treasurer's Office, Woodhaven Lakes or online at
