Have you purchased a home in 2020? Do you know who is paying your 2019 payable in 2020 DeKalb County property taxes? If you’re unsure, Christine J. Johnson, DeKalb County Treasurer, suggests new homeowners check their real estate closing documents, or with their title company or attorney, to see if they owe property taxes due this year. If they find that they do, Johnson recommends that they contact her office for a duplicate bill.

"Each year we have a number of new homeowners who aren't aware that they are responsible for taxes due on their home this year. They receive an allowance against the purchase price of their home at the time of closing, but don't realize they are liable for 2019 taxes due in 2020."

If you have questions about your DeKalb County real estate tax bill, please call the Treasurer's Helpline at 815-895-7337.

DeKalb County offers several exemptions which will help lower your tax bill, including those for homeowners and seniors. Visit dekalbcounty.org/departments/assessment-office/exemptions/list-of-exemptions/ to view a full list of exemptions. Questions on Exemptions? Contact the Chief County Assessment Office at 815-895-7120.
