Office Hours:   8:30 am to 4:30 pm
Monday thru Friday


From December 1, 2017, through December 31, 2017, I will accept prepayments on real estate property taxes for the 2017 tax year (taxes payable in 2018).

I can accept amounts up to the “whole dollar amount” of your last tax payment.  Review your bill and omit any cents shown for the “taxes paid”.  For example, if your last tax bill  was $123.97, you may pay up to $123.00.

If you are paying on multiple properties, please provide the Property Index Number (the “PIN”) and the exact amount paid for each property.

Mailed payments must be postmarked on or before December 31, 2017.  Include a phone number or e-mail address if I have a question on your payment.

Senior Tax Deferral

From January 2, 2018, through March 1, 2018, I will accept applications for the Senior Citizen Real Estate Tax Deferral program.  It is for taxpayers over 65 years old who are on limited fixed incomes and find it difficult to pay a large tax bill.

This state program provides a loan against the property’s market value to pay real estate property taxes.  Deferred amounts are “borrowed” from the state of Illinois who pays the bill.  A 6% simple interest applies to the amount loaned.

Always review the back of the bill for payment options and collector policies.  Call 217-277-2245 if you have any questions.
