First Installment of Property Tax Bills Due June 2

The first installment of Lake County property taxes is due Thursday, June 2. The second installment is due Sept. 2. Please note, you only receive one bill in May. You will not receive another bill in advance of the second installment due date.

Keep in mind, as you pay your tax bill, Lake County only receives a small portion of your property tax payment (about 7%), and the rest is distributed to many other taxing districts. Visit Lake County’s budget page to see where your Lake County tax dollars go.
