Paula Meyer, Lee County Treasurer, announced that her office mailed real estate tax bills on Friday May 22` to Lee County property owners. Taxes are payable in two installments due on June 26th and September 2nd.
The County Treasurer asked that anyone not receiving a bill please contact the Treasurer’s Office (815) 288-4477. Failure to receive a bill does NOT exempt liability for payment. This is the only bill taxpayers will receive.
As the Old Lee County Courthouse is closed, the preferred methods of payment are:
1) Online by direct debit from a bank account at www.leecountyil.com. The online payment service provider charges a $1.00 convenience fee for direct debit payments. No portion of these fees are received by Lee County.
2) Online by credit card at www.leecountyil.com. The online payment service provider charges a 2.35% convenience fee for credit card payments. No portion of these fees are received by Lee County.
3) By mail to the Lee Co. Treasurer, PO Box 328, Dixon, IL 61021. Please include the stubs with the payment.
4) Payment at any bank in Amboy, Ashton, Dixon, Franklin Grove, Paw Paw, Sublette, and West Brooklyn. Please bring the entire tax bill to the bank.
Those taxpayers who intend to pay at the Old Lee County Courthouse should be aware that the building is locked. Payments will be accepted from 8 am to 4:30 pm through a 1st floor window on the north side.
