Will County Treasurer Steve Weber announced in 2012 that his office would accept property tax pre-payments for future year’s property tax levy. The new program gives property owners flexibility when paying taxes on any Will County property by allowing payments on a schedule convenient to the owner.

“People are trying their best to manage their money during this tough economy,” said Weber, “I want to help people manage how much and how often they pay taxes by allowing pre-payments.”

Under the Property Tax Pre-Payment Program, property owners can pre-pay next year’s levy now. There is no pre-determined amount required to be in the program.

“We will apply whatever amount the owner pre-pays towards next year’s levy,” said Weber, “Their tax bill next May will reflect the pre-paid amount, and my staff will mail receipts for each payment.”

“We will refund anyone who overpays next year’s tax bill,” added Weber.

Owners can make pre-payments by mail or in person at the Treasurer’s Office in downtown Joliet. There is a $2 processing fee with each payment.
