Taxpayers should note that first installment tax bills will not reflect homeowner, senior citizen or other exemptions, nor will they reflect the impact of successful assessment appeals that were filed.  The first installment is an estimate based on what was paid last year.  When the second installment bill is mailed in the summer, it will reflect all exemptions for which the property is eligible, as well as any savings due to a successful tax appeal.

Details about Paying Taxes.  If money for property taxes is paid into an escrow account with a taxpayer’s mortgage company, the financial institution should receive the tax bill electronically, even if the taxpayer also receives a copy of the bill. 

Property owners who do not have mortgage companies paying their taxes can make tax payments in person, by mail, or on-line at the Cook County Treasurer’s web site, www.cookcountytreasurer.com.   In-person payments are accepted at the Cook County Treasurer’s downtown office at 118 N. Clark Street and at any Chase Bank in the Chicago area.
