Real Estate Tax Bills to be Mailed by April 29, 2016
Apr 22, 2016
Peoria County Treasurer Edward T. O’Connor announced today that approximately 83,400 Peoria County Real Estate Tax bills will be mailed by April 29, 2016. The first installment due date is June 7, 2016, and the second installment due date is September 7, 2016. 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.
Approximately 36,400 City of Peoria tax bills include the residential garbage collection fee. This year's fee added to the tax bill is only a partial amount, from April 2016 - December 2016; next year's and all subsequent years' fee will be the full annual amount. Please note that while the tax bill is for the 2015 real estate taxes due, the garbage collection fee is for 2016. Questions regarding this fee should be directed to the City of Peoria at 494-8807.
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 this website 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, 2016, 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 on this website.
Questions regarding paying taxes should be directed to the Treasurer’s Office at 672-6065. Questions regarding exemptions should be directed to the Supervisor of Assessments office at 672-6910.
