Peoria County Treasurer Edward T. O’Connor announced today that approximately 82,300 Peoria County Real Estate Tax bills will be mailed by April 23. The first installment due date is June 10 and the second installment due date is September 10. Payments must be postmarked by their respective due dates to avoid penalties. If a tax bill is not received by May 15, the Treasurer’s Office recommends requesting a duplicate bill. Failure to receive a real estate tax bill, or receiving it late for any reason, does not relieve the taxpayer of accruing penalties if taxes are not paid before delinquent dates.
Payments may be made by mail or in person at the Treasurer's Office, township collectors' offices listed on the front of the tax bill, or numerous banks throughout Peoria County. Please refer to Peoria County's website www.peoriacounty.org for the most current list of bank locations. Corresponding payment coupon(s) located on the bottom of the tax bill must accompany payments made at banks and township collectors' offices to ensure efficient processing.
Beginning May 1, 2014, Visa, Master Card, American Express, and Discover card payments will be accepted online or by phone. A convenience fee for credit card payments will be charged based on the payment amount; the Treasurer’s Office does not receive any portion of this fee. Electronic checks will also be accepted for payment. Questions regarding tax bill payments should be directed to the Treasurer’s Office at 672-6065 or may be answered by visiting www.peoriacounty.org/Treasurer. Questions regarding exemptions should be directed to the Supervisor of Assessments Office at 672-6910.
Peoria County property owners will notice that Peoria County's Veteran's Memorial brochure has been inserted with their real estate tax bill this year. The Memorial Committee wants to ensure all citizens of Peoria County have an opportunity to learn more about, or become more involved with, the memorial project. The brochure details the new memorial planned for the Courthouse Plaza to honor all of Peoria County's veterans; this final memorial will complete the county's war memorial project. For more information about the Veterans' Memorial contact Steve Sonnemaker at 672-6059.
