The Government Building is open to the public. We have Plexiglas in place for your security and ours. If you feel uncomfortable about coming into our offices. You can call us at 618-357-5002 or remember we do have a website at You can look up the parcel number or name on Real Estate Taxes by going to the green button at bottom of web page it is say pay taxes. Once you click on the green button a page where you can put Name, Address or parcel number ( remember less is better on that page). It will bring up everything under that name or if just parcel number then double click on the the right name or parcel. And then all information will be at your hand.
