Lake County property taxpayers receive their tax bill from the Lake County Treasurer in May with due dates in June and September.
According to the Illinois Compiled Statues, 35 ILCS 200/15 the Lake County Collector is bound by state law to collect 1.5% penalty per month on any unpaid installment balance after the due dates.
Forgiveness of the penalty must be due to a Lake County error and must be documented. Not receiving a tax bill, medical emergencies, travel or payment history do not qualify for exemption.
