Peoria County Treasurer Nicole Bjerke would like to remind Peoria County taxpayers that the second installment of real estate taxes is due on Wednesday, September 4, 2019. 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, Peoria County Courthouse, 324 Main St., Room G-15, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Please plan accordingly, as most banks and the Courthouse will be closed Monday, September 2 for the Labor Day holiday.
Payments made by mail must be postmarked by the post office on or before September 4, 2019; be sure to check the pickup times at mail receptacles to ensure an accurate postmark. Payments postmarked after September 4, 2019, 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 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.
