The first installment of Bond County real estate taxes is due Monday, August 31.
County Treasurer Katie Weiss told WGEL that over $5.69 million, of the $18.19 million extended in taxes, had been paid through August 21st. This allowed Weiss to make an early distribution to all taxing districts in the county.
The remainder of the first installment taxes paid must legally be distributed no less than 30 days after the deadline. The treasurer said she hopes to get that money distributed as soon as she can.
There is a penalty of one and one-half percent per month for late first installment payments.
The deadline for the second installment of taxes is September 30.
