Tax bills delayed

On another topic concerning Northfield Township, on Sept. 6 township Assessor Alida Nally announced that Cook County second-installment 2021 property tax bills have been delayed. The projected timeline for them to be mailed is in late fall.

The delay is attributed to the implementation of a new integrated property tax system in Cook County, according to the township.

The delay in the 2021 second-installment tax bills means either homeowners or their escrow accounts must be prepared to pay this 2021 property tax bill, then also pay first-installment 2022 bills that usually are due in early March.
