Peoria County Treasurer Nicole Bjerke would like to remind Peoria County taxpayers that the first installment of real estate taxes is due on Tuesday, June 8, 2021.
Taxes are payable at most county banks with payment coupon, by mail, by credit card and electronic check online or via phone, at township collector addresses listed on the tax bill, or in person at the Treasurer’s office. The Treasurer’s Office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, and is located in the Peoria County Courthouse, 324 Main St., Room G-15, Peoria, IL 61602.
Payments made by mail must be postmarked by the post office on or before June 8, 2021; be sure to check the pickup times at mail receptacles to ensure an accurate postmark. Payments postmarked after June 8, 2021, will be subject to a penalty charge. The appropriate payment stub located on the bottom of the tax bill should accompany the tax payment. Taxpayers should remember to put their parcel number on their check to ensure proper credit.
If a tax bill has been misplaced, lost or never received, a duplicate bill can be printed online at http://propertytax.peoriacounty.org/. Failure to receive a tax bill or receiving it late for any reason does not relieve the taxpayer of penalties if not paid by the due date.
