Reminder - Tax Levy Filing Deadline Early This Year

Under Illinois law, taxing bodies must file their tax levy ordinances with their respective county clerks' offices no later than the last Tuesday in December.  This year, the last Tuesday falls on Christmas Day.   The Department of Revenue has advised county clerks that, unlike with other statutes, the filing deadline does not get extended to December 26th, the day after the holiday.  Instead, taxing bodies must file their levies before December 25th. 

Some county offices are closed on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day this year.  In those counties, taxing bodies must file their levy ordinances no later than December 21st.  As an example, Lake County, Illinois is closed both December 24th and 25th, so the last day to file a tax levy in Lake County is tomorrow, December 21st.  You should check with your county clerk's office to ensure that your tax levy ordinance is timely filed.
