EDWARDSVILLE - Madison County Treasurer Chris Slusser is reminding taxpayers that the last day to pay before the county’s annual delinquent tax sale is Friday- Feb 21.
“If you still have unpaid real estate taxes, the last day to pay will be Feb 21,” Slusser said. “Payment must be physically received in our office by that date. Online payments must be made by 11:59 p.m. on Feb 20. The Treasurer’s office is open for business from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.”

Each year the Treasurer’s Office attempts to contact property owners with past due taxes, this is done by certified letter and publication in local newspapers. Madison County allows residents to pay in four installments, the last of which was due Dec. 10. “If you have unpaid taxes, it’s urgent to get them paid quickly to avoid the tax sale,” Slusser said. “It’s important to note that only unpaid taxes are being sold at the tax sale, not individual properties.”
On Monday, Feb 24, Madison County will hold their annual delinquent tax sale which is responsible for collecting all past due taxes.
Property owners who did not receive a property tax bill should call the Treasurer’s Office. Per Illinois law, regardless of whether a tax bill is received, a taxpayer is still responsible for paying the property taxes.
