Tax Information

The Tax division of our office provides tax services including annually calculating the rate for various taxing districts by working with taxing authorities and the Board of Review. We make sure that the rates used in calculating taxes are within the legal limits established by law or the vote of the people.

The Clerk also collects all delinquent (past due) taxes from sold properties and issues tax deeds. The tax redemption area of our office computes and collects payments for past due or unpaid taxes. Call our tax line at (815) 319-4253 for questions or more information.

Just a Reminder for 2023 Tax Levies ....

By Illinois State Statute, Tax Levies (and accompanying Truth in Taxation Certificates of Compliance) are filed with the County Clerk's Office on or before "the last Tuesday in December" which this year falls on Tuesday, December 26.  Because the County will be closed on both 12/25 and 12/26, please be sure all required documents are approved and filed in advance so there are no issues with the deadline date.  We encourage filing on or before Friday, December 22, 2023.
