Taxing Times

Lake County property tax bills in the mail

Lake County Property Tax bills are being mailed May 2nd and should be received by the end of the week.  The bill is payable in two equal installments. The first due date is June 6 and the second installment is due September 6.  Please note, Lake County residents receive a single tax bill for both installments.

Property owners who DO NOT receive 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.

Payment options

Payments can be mailed to Lake County Treasurer’s Office 18 N. County St., Waukegan, 60085.  The Treasurer’s Office accepts payments online by credit card or eCheck. In 2021 the eCheck payment option is free.  Additionally, many local banks accept tax payments.

The bills are based on tax year 2021 property assessments, taxes are payable in 2022.  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.

Check your Exemptions

Exemptions reduce taxes.  An exemption reduces the taxable value of your home.  The most common exemptions are: General Homestead, Senior Homestead, Senior Assessment Freeze and Home Improvement Exemption.  On the bottom right side of the tax bills is the computation ladder.  Look for the deductions applied in this area.  Please contact my office if you believe you are missing as exemption.
