2018 Property Taxes payable in 2019 were mailed today, Friday, July 19. The first Installment Due Date is August 26, 2019, and the second Installment Due Date is September 26, 2019. You may pay your taxes in our office on the first floor of the courthouse in Murphysboro, by mail at PO Box 430, Murphysboro, IL 62966, at any bank in Jackson County except Regions Bank and the bank at Walmart, or online at jacksoncounty-il.gov. A fee is charged if you use a credit/debit card to pay your taxes. This fee does not go to our office but to the credit card company. It is the only way we are allowed to take credit cards.
REMINDER: Mobile Home Taxes are due July 1. By statute, a penalty of $25 a month up to $100 is charged after the deadline. Thanks.
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.
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.
