Peoria County Treasurer Nicole Demetreas would like to remind Peoria County taxpayers that the second installment of real estate taxes is due on Wednesday, September 5, 2018. Please plan accordingly, as most banks and the Courthouse will be closed Monday, September 3 for the Labor Day holiday.
Taxes are payable at most county banks with payment coupon, by mail, at the City Treasurer’s office, by credit card or electronic check, or in person at the Treasurer’s office. The office is located at the Peoria County Courthouse, 324 Main St., Room G-15. It is open 8:30 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday.
Payments made by mail must be postmarked by the post office on or before September 5, 2018; be sure to check the pickup times at mail receptacles to ensure an accurate postmark. Payments postmarked after September 5, 2018 will be subject to a penalty charge. The appropriate payment coupon located on the bottom of the tax bill should accompany the tax payment. Taxpayers should remember to put their parcel number on their check to ensure proper credit.
If a tax bill has been misplaced, lost or never received, a duplicate bill can be printed online at http://propertytax.peoriacounty.org/. Failure to receive a tax bill or receiving it late for any reason does not relieve the taxpayer of penalties if not paid by the due date.
Questions regarding the payment of your taxes should be directed to the Peoria County Treasurer’s office at (309) 672-6065, option 5.
