Monthly or Periodic Prepayment Plan for Current Real Estate Tax Amounts

The office of the DuPage County Treasurer has established a prepayment program to make it easier for taxpayers to pay their property taxes throughout the year.

Treasurer’s Office Accepts Prepayments for the 2017 Tax Year

The Treasurer’s Office accepts prepayments for the 2017 tax year (due in 2018) in the form of cash, check or credit card up until 4:30pm, December 29, 2017. The Treasurer will accept payments up to 105% of last year’s tax obligation. You may send a check via mail or make payment at our office at 421 N. County Farm Road, Wheaton, IL 60187.
