For your convenience we offer two payment options online.

1. Online Transfers from your checking or savings account through our website at no charge. Click on Online Property Tax Bill in the Quicklinks box and follow prompts to pay your bill through Riverside Community Bank. You do not have to have an account with Riverside Community Bank to use this free service.

2. Online with Visa Credit Card, MasterCard, Discover, American Express or Visa Debit through the Illinois Epay Program. There is a sliding fee charged for this service. This fee, according to the amount of your taxes, is charged by the EPay Program and not charged or collected by the Winnebago County Treasurer's office. You can also call EPay directly at 1-877-690-3729 and enter code 7040. You can pay with MasterCard, Discover or American Express.

To use online payments you first need to look up your tax bill by selecting the Online Property Tax Bill in the Quicklinks box to the right. Enter your address or parcel number to retrieve your bill. Select 2012 Real Estate Taxes payable in 2013. Follow the prompts to pay your bill with either your online check or credit card. Only payments for the full amount of the first and/or second installment plus penalty & cost, if paid late, can be accepted. Partial credit card payments cannot be accepted.

Our goal is to provide you with as many convenient ways to pay your Real Estate Taxes as possible. You can pay at many local Banks and Credit Unions, by mail, in person, and now online. Paying taxes is never fun, but we are striving to make it easy.
