Dear Wayne County Taxpayers and Residents,

My goals as your Treasurer are simple - 1) to make paying property taxes in Wayne County as easy and as accessible as possible, 2) to safely keep and distribute property tax money to taxing districts and 3) to help taxpayers understand problems and resolve issues related to property tax payment.

I have an open-door policy and will always work directly with taxpayers - please email Yvette at  countytreasurer@waynecountyil.gov or call 618-842-5087 to either address a question directly or set up a time to come into my office.

Yvette Anderson
Wayne County Treasurer
