Second installment of property tax bill delayed for Cook County

Updated 7/12/2021 1:12 PM

Cook County second installment property tax bills for tax year 2020 will be mailed during the last week of July.

Typically, second installments are mailed the last week of June. The county has also delayed the due date to Sept. 1. All penalties for late payment will be waived until Oct. 1 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


"Property taxes are paid in two installments," says Township of Schaumburg Assessor John R. Lawson. "Pandemic-related issues slowed the processing of appeals, which delayed the mailing. Thankfully, the county extended the payment deadline."

Taxpayers should review the second installment tax bills for their homeowner, senior citizen or other exemptions and any successful assessment appeals filed in 2020. The exemptions and successful appeals will appear on second installment bills, along with any changes in the tax levies of local governments, including the "Cook County Assessor's COVID Adjustment," which was issued in December.
