Thanks to a change in the law, property owners have extra time to pay their First Installment Cook County property tax bills without a late fee, through May 3, 2021. Property tax bills will be arriving in your mailbox any day now.
The Cook County Board of Commissioners in November waived the 1.5 percent per month late fee on all Tax Year 2020 property taxes. Taxpayers can pay the First Installment, due March 2, 2021, without a late fee through May 3, 2021. Late fees also will be waived for two months for the Second Installment, due later this year.
Property owners can pay their bills by visiting www.cookcountytreasurer.com and entering their street address.
