Have you paid your Cook County Real Estate Taxes?

No! Because Residents of Cook County have not received the second installment of their Real Estate Taxes for the 2008 Tax Year.

Taxes in Cook County are paid in arrears. That means taxes paid in 2009 are for the 2008 tax year.

Taxes in Cook County are paid two times a year. The first installment is due in March and the second installment is due in November of each year.

As of October 22, 2009, Cook County residents have not received a tax bill for the second installment of their 2008 Real Estate taxes.

Much of the County Revenue comes from Real Estate Taxes. At a time when the County is struggling to provide services to the community it amazes me why the tax bills have not been mailed.

    Jack-An error by the Assessor’s office caused this delay. They received 80,000 applications for the Long Time Homeowner exemption, but neglected to pass the info on. As a result, every tax rate had to be recalculated.
