From the Lake County Treasurer’s Office: The Lake County Board passed an ordinance for deferred payment of property taxes without penalties as a result of hardship due to the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Under the ordinance, Lake County property owners must still pay the full amount of property taxes due. Property owners may pay their property taxes under the following schedule without penalty:
- By June 8: 50% of first installment normally due in full on June 8
- By August 7: 50% (remainder) of first installment normally due on June 8
- By September 8: 50% of second installment normally due in full on September 8
- By November 9: 50% (remainder) of second installment normally due on September 8.
The Treasurer’s Office will be issuing guidelines for payments under the new ordinance shortly.
The Lake County Board also authorized the Treasurer to mail notice of the deferred payment plan to Lake County property owners. Lake County property owners will receive this notification in approximately two weeks. Updates will also be available on their web site at www.lakecountytreasurer.info.
