Cook County Tax Bills to be Mailed Weeks after Election
(Chicago Tribune) — Cook County property tax bills won’t be out until around Thanksgiving, meaning voters won’t have sticker shock to fuel their anger toward politicians when they head to the polls Nov. 2.
Bills will be mailed around Nov. 22, Treasurer Maria Pappas estimated Tuesday. That’s nearly a full month later than last year, when second installment bills were sent Oct. 28. Any increase in property tax will be included in the bill, along with the second half of the amount shown in the first installment mailing earlier this year.
