Winnebago County, Ill. — Property tax bills for the year 2018 will be received by homeowners, businesses and farms beginning May 29, 2019, following a 30-day delay by the State of Illinois.
The property tax is divided into two equal installments, with due dates of June 28 and September 27, 2019.
Tax payments can be made at the Winnebago County Treasure’s Office, by mail or online at the County treasurer’s website, here. Payments can also be made at many local banks and credit unions after the bill has been received.
Tax payment stubs or computer generated copy of your bill will be required with payments made at banks or credit unions.
Any property owner who does not receive a tax bill by June 14, 2019, should call the Treasure’s Office at 815-319-4400 and ask for a duplicate bill or log onto the Treasurer’s website to print a copy.
If you have a new address and do not receive a tax bill, and you have not changed your mailing address at the Treasurer’s office, please call 815-319-4400 to make arrangements to have a form emailed to you.
Changing your address at the post office will not change your mailing address for tax bills and your tax bill will not be forwarded to you by the post office.
Failure to receive the tax bill does not void the tax or prevent the addition of penalties and cost, if they become delinquent. The penalty for late payment is 1.5% per month.
Taxpayers can receive automatic email reminders about property tax bills and tax sales. You must register for this through the Winnebago County Treasurer’s Office website, here.
