Property tax bills out soon

DANVILLE — Extra work in the Vermilion County Supervisor of Assessments office is causing a delay in this year’s property tax bills.

County Treasurer Sue Stine said her office has just begun printing and folding the bills this week. A staff of young people will come in to assist in stuffing envelopes and Stine said she expects the bills to go out no later than July 12.

The treasurer’s office has already fielded phone calls from a number of residents concerned they had not received their property tax bill.

Stine estimated around 51,000 bills would be sent out once they are printed, folded and stuffed in envelopes. That is slightly down from the 52,700 mailed out last year.

With the early July mailing date, the due date for the first installment will be Aug. 12. The second installment will be due from residents on Sept. 6.

According to Stine, factoring work done by Supervisor of Assessments Matt Long created the delay in mailing this year. The Illinois Department of Revenue had indicated that Vermilion County was over-assessed in some townships.

Long had to work on the incorrect townships, Stine said, in order to get things in line with the state’s figures.

This is not the first year property tax bills were held up by additional figuring. Property tax bills came out late last year as a result of changes in a Tax Increment Financing district for Tilton. The district expanded, prompting additional research and extra work for the county clerk’s office in dealing with some technical issues.

This year’s installment payment schedule is only days off of the payment deadlines used last year.

As in previous years, there are a number of ways in which residents can pay property tax bills. Stine said residents can take the bills into any bank in the county and pay there, as well as use the return envelopes included with the bills.

Credit card scanners are in use for a third year at the treasurer’s office for those who prefer to pay in person.

In addition, a link to pay the property tax bills online is available at the county treasurer’s website, http://www.co.vermilion.il.us/Treas.htm.

Stine said last year that a few more people than in previous years began to use the Internet link to pay their property tax bills.
