Partial payments can only be accepted by the Treasurer’s Office, collector banks will not accept partial payments. 
 
Making partial payments works as an installment payment plan.
 
The State of Illinois imposes a 1.5% monthly penalty on the unpaid balance on late payments. 
The first installment will be considered late if paid after June 29, 2107; the second installment will be considered late if paid after August 29, 2017.  
The penalty increases by 1.5% every thirty days. 
The amount owed with penalty is detailed on the tax bill on each payment coupon.
 
All balances must be paid in full by September 22, 2017 to avoid publication in the newspaper.
 
All balances must be paid by 5:00 p.m., November 3, 2017 to prevent taxes from going to tax sale.
