First installment property tax bills for tax year 2013 arrived in the last week of January, according to Schaumburg Township Assessor John R. Lawson.
"Property taxes are paid in two installments," he explained. "The first installment bill is 55 percent of the total property tax bill for the previous year, and will be due on March 4, 2014."
Taxpayers should note the first installment tax bills will not reflect homeowner, senior or other exemptions, nor will they reflect successful assessment appeals that were filed for tax year 2013. Property owners who do not have mortgage companies paying their taxes can make payments in person, by mail or online at the Cook County Treasurer's website, cookcountytreasurer.com. In-person payments are accepted at the Cook County Treasurer's at 118 N. Clark St. in Chicago, and at any Chase Bank in the Chicago area.
