Taxing Times

Lake County property tax bills in the mail

Lake County Property Tax bills are being mailed May 1st and should be received by the end of the week.  The first installment is due and must be received or postmarked by Monday, June 6 to avoid late penalties. Any payment received after the due date must include a 1.5 percent monthly penalty. Payments can be made by mail to Lake County Treasurer’s Office 18 N. County St., Waukegan, 60085 or online by credit card or e-check.

County residents receive a single tax bill for the full year’s taxes. That bill is payable in two equal installments. The first due date is June 6 and the second installment deadline is September 6.  Please note, Lake County taxpayers DO NOT receive a second bill when the second installment is due.

Property owners who DO NOT received a bill, or those looking for payment options, can obtain this by calling the Treasurer’s Office at 847-377-2323 or information is online at address noted below.

Most taxpayers will find the tax bills increasing by an average of 3% in Lake Villa Township.  Plain and simple spending by the taxing bodies increased which equates to an increase on your tax bill.  Please link to my portion of the Lake Villa Township website for much more information (link below).

The bills are for 2016 property taxes, which are payable in 2017.  Keep in mind, tax bills are based on the assessment of your property that took place last year and the appeal process has already passed. By law, only factual errors can be corrected once the bills go out, changes can not be made for market valuation issues.
