A proof of payment, otherwise known as a Redemption Receipt, verifies that you have made tax payments for a particular property for a particular tax year, including the dates paid.

A duplicate Redemption Receipt will be exactly the same as what you would have received at the time you made your payment. The Redemption Receipt shows the amount paid to redeem a particular tax sale, the name of the redeeming party, the date of the payment, and the various taxes, penalties and costs that were included.

The request to obtain a duplicate Redemption Receipt can be made by contacting the Moultrie County Clerk's office as follows:
