Iroquois County Tax Bills are in the mail

County Treasurer, Kurt Albers, has announced that the 2018 payable in 2019 real estate tax statements have been mailed to the taxpayers of Iroquois County.  The deadline to pay the first installment without penalty is July 16, 2019.  The second installment due date is September 16, 2019.  After the due dates a 1 ½ percent penalty must be added each month it remains unpaid, according to Illinois State Statutes.  Taxpayers must include their tax bill when paying or a $1.00 fee will be charged.

 

The Treasurer’s Office is open 8:30 to 4:30 Monday through Friday.  To avoid waiting in line, you may also pay by mail or at any bank in Iroquois County including Iroquois Federal, Commonwealth Credit Union and the First State Bank of Forrest in Onarga.  Taxpayers paying in person at the Treasurer’s Office or at the local banks should bring the entire bill if they would like a receipt.  Upon payment, the appropriate stub of the bill will be removed and then the date will be stamped on the back of the remaining part of the tax bill.  If you mail your payment and wish to have a receipt, you must enclose the entire bill plus a self-addressed stamped envelope.

 

Credit card payments will be accepted by phone and online starting June 17, 2019.  Call the Treasurer’s Office first at 815-432-6985 during office hours to verify the payment amount.  Then you will be given the Government Payment Service phone number, website address, and the pay location and authorization codes.  Their phone number and the website will be available 24 hours a day 7 days a week to receive payments.  Fees will be added based on the amount charged, there is a minimum service fee, and all fees are paid to and kept by Government Payment Service.

 

Members of any United States Armed Forces Reserve Unit can defer their real estate tax payment until 180 days after they return from active duty.  This option is available if you are called to active duty for deployment outside the continental United States and if you are on active duty on the due date of any installment of taxes.

 

Remember that a drop box has been installed at the Administrative Center near the 911 Center so that taxpayers can drop off their payments during non-office hours.

 

If you have any questions about exemptions, assessed valuations, or address changes, please contact the Assessment Office at (815) 432-6978.

 

If you have any questions regarding the tax rates, please contact the County Clerk’s Office at (815) 432-6960.

 

If there are any questions about your tax statements, feel free to call the Treasurer’s Office at (815) 432-6985.

WARMER WEATHER = CRIMES OF OPPORTUNITY

A few reminders to help you enjoy your summer-

More people will be moving around during the warmer nights, simply locking your car doors and keeping valuables out of sight may prevent someone from tugging on your door and gaining access.   Maybe you’re only 100 feet from your car while watching your kid’s baseball game but left the doors unlocked or windows down……..#removekeyslockdoors

Same for your home, locking your doors while you make that “quick trip” for a few minutes could make a huge difference.

Divided attention visitors- It happens every year.  You are working in your yard and someone stops by with some story or sales pitch to distract you while another person goes in your home to grab whatever they can as quickly as they can.  Be aware!

Tools left out- That new chainsaw, push mower or maybe a dirt bike is a prime target for someone driving around looking for something quick and easy.  Prevent the yard bandits!

On-line sales-  Reminder, you are welcome to use the Sheriff’s Dept parking lot for a meeting place to prevent an unknown person coming to your home address.

Telephone scams are endless- car warranty, social security number has been suspended, Power Company or IRS calls.  Don’t blindly believe that call you get.  Check it out before sending money.  If anyone ask you to get gift cards as payment………………RED FLAG!

Any active incident should be reported to 9-1-1 immediately.  Provide as much information as possible; suspect’s physical description, details and plate number of suspect’s vehicle.
