Hello, This email communication is a formal request for a copy of your county's excess funds list that I believe is maintained by your department. Your county may call them overages, overbids or surplus funds instead of excess funds. I am looking for the list of all the excess funds that occurred due to a bid over the amount of property taxes owed at the tax sale. I am looking for the list of all the excess funds that have not been collected on properties that have not been redeemed. The information I need from the records is owner's name, the property address or owner's mailing address, the tax sale date, and the amount of excess funds due the owner. Please let me know if you have these records available electronically, either by email or through the internet, or if they are only in hard copy and what I need to do to have a copy mailed to me. If you have them available electronically, I would prefer to have them that way. Please let me know if there is a charge for the list and where to send payment. Please let me know to whom I need to speak if I have reached the wrong department. If you don't have the excess funds in list format, please let me know how I can get the information requested. I am not located in your county, and I appreciate any assistance you can give me. Please let me know if you have any questions. You may contact me at the email address above or at (714)798-4694. If there is anything I can do to aid or expedite the process, please let me know. I am willing to do whatever I can to make your job easier. Thank you in advance for your assistance. Sincerely, Lavel Buckholtz
