Notwithstanding this somewhat reasonable reply and WC's self-righteous bloviating, the news media opened the door on this by reporting anything about it in the first place. The lack of any followup is curious to say the least. Applies to both the "apparent suicide" and the body found behind Dollar General. Not to say it hasn't happened many times in the past, but it is still curious…

There is no difference! They both enjoy taking money from people who work for it and giving it to the leeches. They also have no problem killing the unborn and selling their body parts. They are both selfish and lazy. Neither has any redeeming value in life. In the old days they would have all starved to death do to their failure to plant or harvest food for the winter.

Actually, Hydro, you don't have "every right" to know who the deceased gentleman is (unless you're his next of kin). You merely paid your taxes; that one (insignificant) fact does not give you the "right" to know any darned thing about the man. (Using your logic, the identities and the home addresses of crime victims would be announced every night on the 10 o'clock news, simply to…

That time of year: Adams Co. property tax bills in the mail

1 year, 2 months ago by

County Treasurer Terry Asher's office mailed 36,861 tax bills on Wednesday

Adams County real estate tax bills are in the mail. 

Adams County Treasurer Terry Asher's office mailed 36,861 tax bills on Wednesday.

Most taxpayers should receive their bill by Friday, May 30.  Please call the Treasurer’s office at 217-277-2245 if you do not receive a bill by June 2.

Asher asks that all taxpayers review the back of the bill for current payment options and other collector policies.  Major changes this year include a new website and a reduced convenience fee to process electronic check payments.  There are also new instructions for taxpayers that use a bank billpay system to pay their taxes.

Original tax bills are mailed to the property owner of record.  If a mortgage company pays the property taxes through an escrow service, it is the owner’s responsibility to ensure his mortgage company receives a copy of the bill, if required.

If a taxpayer receives a tax bill for a property they no longer own, either return the bill to the Treasurer’s office or forward it to the new owner.

Taxes may be paid in two installments.  The first installment is due on Tuesday, July 01, 2014 and the second installment is due on Tuesday, September 02, 2014.

For payments made in-person at the Treasurer’s office, the last day to pay on time is Tuesday, July 01, 2014 for the first installment and Tuesday, September 02, 2014 for the second installment.  A drop box is available near the 5th Street entrance on the west end of the courthouse.

For payments sent by mail, the postmark date on the envelope determines whether a payment is late.  Payments must be postmarked on or before Tuesday, July 01, 2014 for the first installment and on or before Tuesday, September 02, 2014 for the second installment to be considered an on-time payment.  For payments sent by delivery service such as UPS or FEDEX, the shipping date shown on the packaging is considered the same as a postmark.

Taxpayers have the option to pay by credit card, debit card or electronic check.  Pay either online or by phone using the website and phone number shown on the back of the bill.  A convenience fee applies to each payment and varies from $1.00 for electronic checks, $3.95 for VISA debit cards, or 2.35% of the payment amount for credit cards and other debit cards.

Most local banks accept tax payments and have branches that are open on weekends.  These payments are considered on time if the bank records show the taxpayer made the payment on or before the due date.

Refer any questions to the Adams County Treasurer’s office at 277-2245.
