First installment of property tax bills due July 1

Ogle County Collector Linda Beck is reminding property owners that the first installment of their property tax bill is due July 1.

Payment methods include cash or check (payable to Ogle County Collector). In-person payments can be made at the Treasurer’s office located in the “old” Ogle County Courthouse at 105 S. 5th Street, Suite 114, in Oregon or at any bank in Ogle County.

Office hours at the courthouse are 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Monday - Friday excluding holidays.

A secure drop box is located at the 5th Street address for taxpayers to drop off check payments after hours or on the weekends.

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 get to this site by going directly to or through and then selecting the Treasurer’s department. Choose the Online Tax Payments link and click the Pay Now button,” Beck said. “Fill in the information as prompted. Be sure to receive a payment confirmation for your records. Please note that this service carries a fee; review the convenience fees prior to making payment.”
