County Treasurer, Kurt Albers, announced that the deadline to pay the second installment of real estate taxes without penalty is Monday, September 16, 2019. After that date, 1 ½ percent interest on all property must be added to the 2nd installment each month it remains unpaid according to the Illinois State Statutes. The interest rate on the first installment will be 4 ½ percent after September 16, 2019.
The Treasurer’s Office is open 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. To avoid waiting in line, you may also pay by mail or at any bank in the county. If the postmark reads September 16, 2019, the payment will not be late. There is also a drop box on the south side of the Administrative Center near the 911 Center.
