The Ogle County Board meets on the third floor of the historic Ogle County Courthouse in downtown Oregon, Illinois.

OREGON — Property tax bills for Ogle County land owners were mailed on May 6. The first installment will be due on June 10, with the second installment due on Sept 2.

“This single document will contain tax information and payment stubs for both installments. Therefore, property owners need to save this bill as no additional notice will be mailed prior to the second installment,” said Ogle County Collector Linda Beck in a press release.

Payment methods include cash or check (payable to Ogle County Collector). In-person payments can be made at the Treasurer’s office or at any bank in Ogle County.

The Treasurer’s office is in the old Courthouse located at 105 S. 5th Street in Oregon. Office hours are 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Monday - Friday excluding holidays. The mailing address is Ogle County Collector, P.O. Box 40, Oregon, IL 61061.

Mailed payments must be postmarked by the due date to be considered timely. Late payments will incur a fee of 1.5% per month or part of a month after the due date and must be remitted by mail or at the Collector’s office.

Beck’s office is also offering the option of online credit card payments. “You may go to the Ogle County website at www.oglecounty.org and then select the Treasurer’s department. Choose the Online Tax Payments link and click the Pay Now button. Fill in the information as prompted. Be sure to receive a payment conformation for your records. Please note that this service carries a fee; review the convenience fees prior to making payment,” she said.
