Sign Up For E-Bill
Sign up to receive your tax bill via e-mail instead of a paper bill in the mail. The “E-bill” will be similar in appearance with a link to the E-check website to make a paperless payment. Paperless bills make the collection of property taxes cost effective and convenient for the taxpayer. The application is found at the following link: http://co.sangamon.il.us/Portals/0/Departments/Treasurer/Docs/TaxBillEmailRequest.pdf. Please complete, sign and forward the application to: Treasurer@co.sangamon.il.us
After enrolling, you will receive a verification e-mail requiring you to confirm that you received the e-mail. You will then receive your tax bill in late April or early May. We will send an annual verification e-mail in February or March to determine if you want to continue with paperless payments. If you don’t verify annually, we will send a paper bill to the address on file.
