Iroquois County offices are ready to complete the 2018 payable in 2019 real estate tax bill cycle.

Last month treasurer Kurt Albers announced that there was a hold up at the state level and tax bills would be delayed 30-60 days.

It’s been about six weeks and clerk Lisa Fancher said the state has now given Iroquois County its multiplier — a 1.

She said her office has sent all 144 taxing bodies their tax extension sheets to review over to make sure things are correct; they will then have to sign them and send them back to the clerk’s office. Early next week her office will “roll over” the cycle to the treasurer’s office to print off samples from each taxing code.

From there, Alberts said he hopes the tax bills will be printed and put in the mail by June 17.

The first installment will be due 30 days after the bills are sent out, as per statute.

Fancher said the second installment will be due in September.

“That’s the inconvenience for some people, that the two installments come so close together,” she said.
