The due date for the first installment of your property tax bill this year originally was scheduled for June 1, but Kane County Treasurer David Rickert suggested — and the Kane County Board agreed — to waive late penalty fees for any payment made by July 1.
The board voted on April 14 to extend the first installment deadline in order to help those adversely affected by the COVID-19 virus outbreak.
Now, the Treasurer’s Office is sending a gentle reminder of that the July 1 deadline is drawing near.
The first installment of property tax can be paid without penalty on or before 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 KaneCountyTreasurer.org or by contacting the Treasurer’s Office at 630-232-3565.
Taxpayers can make payment by:
Mailing the payment to the Treasurer’s Office. Mail postmarked by July 1 will be processed without penalty.
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.
Make payment at a participating Kane County Bank. List available at KaneCountyTreasurer.org.
Pay over the Internet by E-check (This service is free.)
Pay over the Internet by credit/debit card. (Please note there is a convenience fee for this service.)
