Please re-read the article... it said a FLAT year. That means no expected growth and no expected losses.So spectulating and crying doom is very premature.

Layoffs probably inevitable but speculating on a move out of state or country is premature. As for your other questions I would refer you to Rosanne Rosanadanna - her first response would be "You sure ask a lot of questions for somebody from New Jersey". Sorry to the youngens out these who weren't exposed to Rosanne - very funny stuff.

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

4 months, 3 weeks ago by 0

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.
