Whiteside County Treasurer Darlene Hook and Whiteside County Supervisor of Assessments Robin Brands have selected wEdge to make the county’s property tax data available to the public.
Whiteside County currently uses the DEVNET Edge® Property Tax Assessment Administration & Billing and Collection solutions. DEVNET is gratified that the county is adding yet another of the Edge® solutions. wEdge is DEVNET’s e-government solution for providing property tax information to public and county users, and it is becoming the leading property information platform in the industry. wEdge provides a powerful yet easy-to-use interface for searching and viewing all properties within a jurisdiction. With minimal effort, users can create powerful queries, browse matching properties, and view details about each property.
“Whiteside County is pleased to announce a new website for accessing online assessment and tax information,” commented Hook and Brands. “This will be a great tool for title searchers, tax preparers, and residents. Current year real estate taxes can be paid online through the Illinois Epay link on the wEdge page. The information is public knowledge and will be free and accessible 24/7.”
“If you have questions or problems when accessing the website,” they continued, “you may call Whiteside County offices of Treasurer Darlene Hook at 815-772-5196 or Whiteside County Assessor Robin Brands at 815-772-5195 during normal Courthouse hours, Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., except on holidays.

About Whiteside County
Whiteside County is rich in history, agriculture, and industry. The county was established on January 16, 1836. It is the namesake of General Samuel Whiteside who, as a major, fought in the Indian Wars in this section of the country from 1812 until the close of the Black Hawk War. The county also boasts the birthplace of President Ronald Reagan (in Tampico), the Albany Mounds State Historic Site, and a segment of one of the first continental highways -- U.S. Route 30, also known as the Lincoln Highway. Morrison, the county seat, is centrally located on U.S. Route 30. The communities of Sterling and Rock Falls, located 15 miles to the east, comprise most of the county's 60,000 population.
