2nd Installment 2017 Property Taxes due August 1, 2018
Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas has set up an online automated system to allow property owners to pay their property taxes online for free. You can go online and download your bill or you can apply to get your bill by email. The 1st Installment 2017 property taxes were due on March 1. The 2nnd Installment 2017 property taxes are due on August 1, 2018.
Pappas also announced that property owners paying the taxes using their bank accounts will no longer have to pay the $1 fee for the transaction.
That change, Pappas said, begins June 21, 2018 and is designed to boost the growing number of taxpayers who make electronic payments.
Removing the $1 fee is just one feature Pappas is offering to make paying property taxes more convenient:
- To pay over the Internet for free, visit cookcountytreasurer.com and select “Make an Online Payment.”
- To receive future tax bills by email, select “eBilling.” You will no longer receive your bill by mail.
- To obtain a copy of your tax bill, select “Download Your Bill.” That bill can be printed and used to pay by mail or in person.
Online payments have soared from about 17,000 in 2001 to more than 485,000 in 2016. For property owners paying their taxes using a credit card, third-party processing fees apply.
1st installment Property Tax Bills are due March 1, 2018. 2nd installment Property Tax Bills are due August 1, 2018.
