OTHER PROPERTY TAX INFORMATION

Each payment must be accompanied by the detachable portion of the tax bill. Mailed payments must be postmarked on or before the due date to avoid interest charge.
Check should be payable to: Morgan County Treasurer. Your cancelled check is your receipt. Payment is void if check fails to clear. There is an additional $25 charge for all returned checks. Post dated checks are illegal and will not be held for processing.
Illinois Statutes require 1 1/2% per month or part of the month penalty for payments made after due dates.
You will only receive one notice. Separate bills are not mailed for the second installment. There will be a $2.00 charge for duplicate tax bills.
By law, failure to receive a tax bill or receiving one late bill, for any reason, does not relieve the taxpayer from taxes or late penalties. If you are not responsible for payment of the tax bill, please forward the bill to the owner or return it to the Treasurer.
