Iroquois County tax bills are in the mail. Payment is due June 13th and then September 13th.
County Treasurer, Mindy Kuntz Hagan, announced that the 2015 payable in 2016 real estate tax statements have been mailed to the taxpayers of Iroquois County.
The deadline to pay the first installment without penalty is June 13, 2016. The second installment due date is September 13, 2016. After the due dates a 1 ½ percent penalty must be added each month it remains unpaid, according to Illinois State Statutes.
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 and Commonwealth Credit Union.
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.
Credit card payments will be accepted by phone and online starting May 13, 2016. Call the Treasurer's Office first at 815-432-6985 during office hours to verify the payment amount.
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.
