Second installment Cook County property tax deadline extended to Oct. 1 without penalty
Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas’ office is giving taxpayers extra time to pay in an effort to help those struggling during the pandemic.
Cook County property taxes still must be paid, but if you’re a little short on cash this month, you have an extra two months before the 2019 second installment is due.
It’s part of Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas’ effort to offer a little help to folks struggling during the pandemic.
The typical due date for second-installment taxes is Aug. 3.
“In my nearly 22 years as treasurer, I’ve never told people not to pay their taxes,” Pappas said in a statement. “But the pandemic has changed a lot of things. If you’ve lost your job and don’t have the money, you do not have to pay until Oct. 1, 2020.”
