) Judge Presiding.
JUSTICE JOSEPH GORDON delivered the opinion of the court:
Petitioner-appellant, Hawkeye Investments Limited Partnership (Hawkeye), purchased
property belonging to respondent-appellee, Lisa Lanz, at a 2002 tax sale due to Lanz’s failure to
pay her taxes for the year 2000. Lanz then sought to redeem the property. Although her
payment fell short by $22.48 on the date that the period of redemption expired, the trial court
ruled that she was entitled to an equitable redemption and extended the time she had to pay the
outstanding debt. It is this ruling which Hawkeye now challenges in its appeal. For the reasons
that follow, we affirm.
