The Jackson County Treasurer's Office is accepting pre-payments for 2018 property taxes due in 2019. Please contact our office today at 618-687-7350 for information on participating in this program. Join hundreds of other Jackson County taxpayers in making early payments so the final amount you will pay next summer will be reduced.
Just a reminder. . .The Final Installment Date for the 2017 property taxes payable 2018 are due November 26, 2018. This is the Monday after the Thanksgiving Vacation. Due to this timing, we will extend the Grace Period of not placing a penalty on the Second Installment for a few days. If you have not paid the First Installment that was due on October 26, there is 1.5% penalty on that. We will only be open Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday during Thanksgiving Day week. The Courthouse is closed on November 22 and 23. Please remember you may pay your property taxes at all banks in Jackson County (except Regions and the bank in Walmart) through November 26. The banks will not accept taxes after November 26. You may also pay online at www.jacksoncounty-il.gov or mail your check to our office.
The Sealed Bid Books have arrived! They are $5.00 each, and we have books that can be perused in our office for free. The books contain information and some pictures of parcels that went through the Tax Sales but were not bought. Bids begin under $800. The last day for sealed bids will be before 4:00 pm on November 9. They will then be turned over to our trustee who will open them and contact those with the highest bids.
