Pay Your Property Taxes Yet? Penalty Goes Up July 1

Pay Your Property Taxes Yet? Penalty Goes Up July 1

If you haven’t paid the first installment of your Kane County property tax bill yet, you might want to get on that.

The first installment was due, of course, back on June 1, 2016. Notices were sent in the mail April 27.

Right now, the penalty for a late payment of that first installment is 1.5 percent. Kane County Treasurer David J. Rickert is reminding taxpayers that the penalty for a first-installment payment of property taxes will increase to 3 percent after July 1.

If you are a new or existing homeowner and need a copy of the bill to remit payment, you may print off a bill from the Internet by visiting the following the website or by contacting the Treasurer’s Office at 630-232-3565.

Taxpayers can make payment by:

  • Mailing the payment to the Treasurer’s Office.
  • Dropping the payment off in the property tax drop box, which is available 24 hours a day. The drop box is located behind Building A at the Kane County Government Center, 719 South Batavia Ave., Geneva, IL.
  • Pay over the Internet by credit card or e-check. Please note there is a convenience fee for this service.
