QUINCY -- The Adams County treasurer's office has begun accepting real estate property tax prepayments for 2018 and will continue to do so until the end of the year.
Prepayments will be accepted either in person or by mail and will bear a 2017 receipt date. Prepayments sent by mail must be postmarked on or before Dec. 31.
Prepayment of next year's property taxes allows taxpayers to deduct them from their 2017 income tax returns.
Taxpayers may prepay taxes up to the whole dollar amount of their previous tax bill. If paying on multiple parcels, they should provide the parcel number and the amount paid for each parcel.
The treasurer's office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays but will be closed on Friday, Dec. 22 and Monday, Dec. 25.
