Payment Information

  • You may pay your prop­er­ty tax­es at most Union Coun­ty Banks.
  • If tax­es are paid through escrow (Mort­gage Com­pa­ny, Sav­ings and Loan, Bank) it is your respon­si­bil­i­ty to for­ward the prop­er­ty tax bill to your agent.
  • If you have sold real estate, mail the prop­er­ty tax bill to the new own­er.
  • The Tax Col­lec­tor will not be respon­si­ble for pay­ment on the wrong tax bill.
  • All pay­ments made after the due date must be made at the Treasurer’s office. Banks can­not col­lect delin­quent tax.
  • Fail­ure to receive a tax bill will not relieve the tax pay­er of penal­ties accru­ing if tax­es are not paid before the penal­ty date.
  • Inter­est is added at the rate of 1–1/2% per month for delin­quent tax­es or any frac­tion there­of, after penal­ty dates until tax is sold or for­feit­ed. A $10.00 cost will be added for cer­ti­fied mail/advertising for each delin­quent tax bill.
  • Be sure to enclose the 1st or 2nd install­ment stub to insure the prop­er cred­it.
  • The pay­ment is void if made by a check which is not hon­ored by the bank.
  • Check your tax bill for own­er occu­pied and senior cit­i­zens exemp­tions. If you qual­i­fy, but have not received cred­it, call or vis­it the Super­vi­sor of Assess­ments, 618–833-8051.
  • To change your name or address on a tax bill, call the Super­vi­sor of Assess­ments at 618–833-8051.
  • The Tax Col­lec­tor only col­lects your tax­es and is not respon­si­ble for your tax assess­ment or the amount of tax that you are pay­ing.
