It’s a notable change from the past years. Because of delays calculating and issuing bills, second installment bills last year weren’t mailed until November and due until Dec. 1. In 2022, second installment bills didn’t come due until Dec. 30.

Officials called the timely release and restoration of the billing cycle outlined under state law “a significant milestone.”

They credited collaborative efforts of among elected officials and the Property Tax Reform Group for restoring the billing schedule. The group includes officials from the county assessor’s office, county clerk’s office, Cook County Board of Review and county treasurer’s office.
