First half of property taxes due Monday
URBANA — The first installment of Champaign County property tax payments is due next Monday, according to a reminder from County Treasure Dan Welch.
A June 2 postmark will count as property taxes paid on time, he said.
Office hours at the treasurer's office will be extended and will run from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., including the noon hour, on Monday. The office is at the Brookens Administrative Center, 1776 E. Washington St., U.
Also, a 24-hour drop box for payments of property tax bills is in the south circle drive of the Brookens Center.
By law, according to Welch, interest on late payments is calculated at 1.5 percent per month and will be assessed on first installment payments made after June 2.
