Champaign County Treasurer

Duties

The County Treasurer serves as both Treasurer and Collector. The Treasurer is responsible for depositing, investing, and disbursing all funds for Champaign County. The Collector is responsible for billing, collecting, investing, and distributing property taxes for all taxing bodies in Champaign County.

County Treasurers are more cash managers than long-term investors. Our investment objectives are Safety, Liquidity, and Yield in that order. These objectives are spelled out in our Investment Policy, required by Illinois law for custodians of public funds.

The Collector sends out approximately 77,000 real estate tax bills annually and collects funds that are distributed to 125 taxing districts. The bills are usually mailed in early May and are typically due in June and September each year. The annual tax sale occurs in late October for properties with unpaid tax bills.

The Collector also sends out 3,400 Mobile Home tax bills. The bills are mailed in March and are due sixty days after mailing.

The County Treasurer is, by law, the Treasurer and Collector for all drainage districts, unless they appoint someone else to one or both positions. We are currently Treasurer for 57 drainage districts in Champaign County.

Mission Statement

To serve the taxpayers and taxing districts of Champaign County by managing a professional billing, collecting, short-term investing, and disbursing system for tax monies. To ensure the safety, liquidity, and yield of County funds in the custody of this office by developing and implementing a sound cash-management investment policy, and to comply with the requirements of Illinois law.
