The second installment of Cook County tax bills are normally mailed in late June, and are due by August 1st, but they will be delayed 30-60 days this year.
The delay is due to:
- COVID-19, the government shutdown, and the work-from-home phenomenon.
- The Cook County Assessor granted large assessment reductions to most homeowners in Cook County, slowing down the assessment process.
- Assessing officials processed a large number of appeals from taxpayers who sought relief because COVID-19 affected their property value.
The second installment tax bills will be mailed in late August with an anticipated due date of October 1, 2021. You can find your tax bill on the Cook County Treasurer's website by mid-August.
