Pappas: Cook County property taxes due by December 30

Property owners must pay the Second Installment of their Cook County property taxes by Friday, December 30, 2022, to avoid late charges imposed by state law.

“The most efficient way to pay is online,” said Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas. “You can download your bill online and get a receipt after you pay. We’ve collected nearly $2 billion in Second Installment property tax payments online.”

Payments made at before 11:59 p.m. on December 30 will be recorded as on time.
