Tax Bill Method:
Individuals who reside outside the Caseyville Public Library District limits are required by Illinois State Law to purchase a card by paying a fee equivalent to the locally assessed library tax. Non-resident fees are calculated using a tax bill method.
Non-residents who choose to purchase cards must provide the documentation necessary to calculate the fee. In most cases, this will be a current tax bill or rental agreement. The non-resident family is paid annually.
A family is defined as individuals residing at the same address.
No fee will be less than $25 if a tax or rental bill does not apply.
