Barbara R. Sear, Livingston County Treasurer, has announced that real estate tax bills were mailed on Wednesday, May 30, 2018. A total of 25,858 tax bills were mailed. The estimated tax revenue to be collected on behalf of the 194 taxing bodies in the County is $67,213,237.94.
The first installment will be due on Friday, July 13, 2018 and the second installment will be due on Thursday, September 13, 2018. Payments may be made at most County banks, by mail or at the Treasurer’s office in the Historic Courthouse in Pontiac. A drop box is located next to the south entrance of the Courthouse for after-hours payments.
Payments using a credit or debit card or E-check can also be made on the County’s website, www.livingstoncountyil.gov, on the Treasurer’s page (or by clicking on the below button). We are pleased to announce a partnership with GovTech Services Inc. to provide taxpayers with this convenience. The credit card companies do charge a convenience fee and the fee will appear separately on both your receipt and monthly statement. The fee for processing an E-check is a flat rate.
After September 13th payments will not be accepted at area banks and MUST be made in person at the Treasurer’s office in the Courthouse. Personal checks will not be accepted after October 16, 2018 and payment after that date must be made with a cashier’s check, money order or cash. Delinquent Notices will be mailed on October 16, 2018. The names of delinquent property owners will be published during the week of October 29, 2018. Online payments using a credit or debit card will be accepted up through November 9, 2018.
Several items of information are printed on the reverse side of the tax bill which may answer most taxpayer questions. For further information, call the Treasurer’s Office at (815) 844-2306 between 8:00 AM and 4:30 PM daily.
