Late Payments

The Lake County Treasurer's Office is required by State law to collect a 1.5 percent penalty per month on any unpaid installment balance after the due dates. This year, the penalty is calculated on the 7th of each month and is not prorated by state law. Visit our Late Payment web page for more information.
