UPDATES FROM THE BLOOM TOWNSHIP ASSESSOR’S OFFICE - JULY 2020

Please call before you come in.

We will be moving forward with by appointment only.

Priority given to those with missing exemptions on 2nd installment.

We urge all taxpayers to become familiar with the Cook County Assessor website for online filing of exemptions and appeals.

The 2nd installment property tax bill is scheduled to be mailed on June 30th with a payment due date of October 1st instead of the normal August 3rd due date. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, taxpayers are being granted 90 days in which to pay their property tax bill with no late penalties if paid on or before October 1st.

Please check your tax bill, once you receive it, to ensure that any exemptions(s) you may qualify for where applied. If your tax bill does not reflect your exemption(s) please contact us immediately. We can either schedule an appointment or you can file the Certificate of Error online via cell phone or desktop.

The 2020 Reassessment for all south suburban townships is upon us. Reassessment notices for Bloom Township are scheduled to be mailed September 14th taxpayers will be able to file an appeal after receiving their notice until October 22nd. New this year is the online filing system, which can be done via cell phone or desktop. Should the taxpayer miss the filing date, he or she can file their appeal with the Board of Review.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at 708-754-9400 .
