First installment property taxes are due Tuesday, March 1, Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas said in a statement on Monday. Taxpayers can visit cookcountytreasurer.com to pay their bills.
Pappas said that almost 1.8 million bills were posted on the treasurer’s website in early December and mailed to taxpayers in late January.
“More than 70% of property owners have paid their taxes, including more than 207,000 taxpayers who went to our website and paid online,” Pappas said. “Paying online is safe, and online payments will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, March 1.”
Pappas offered the following instructions in order to make a payment or download a copy of a tax bill at cookcountytreasurer.com:
- Select the blue box labeled “Pay Online for Free”
- Search by property address or enter your Property Index Number
- There is no fee if you pay from your bank account
For those who cannot pay the full amount due, partial payments are accepted. After March 1, any balance due is charged 1.5% per month, as required by state law.
