Cook County Overdue Tax Bills to Be Sold April 3

Cook County Seal

On April 3, 2017, overdue Cook County property tax bills will be sold at auction.

If your property tax bill payments are up to date, you have nothing to worry about.

If your Cook County property tax bill is delinquent, your unpaid tax bill can be sold at auction starting April 3rd. A buyer can purchase your unpaid property tax bill and you would owe them the tax money plus interest.

How to check your Cook County property tax status

If you want to check the status of you Cook County property taxes, you can visit the Cook County Treasurer’s Office website and search by Property Index Number (PIN) or search by address.

The Cook County Treasurer’s office also offers an informational brochure about how to avoid the April 3 property tax sale. (PDF)

Local organizations have conducted a push to inform property owners about the tax sale. “Reach out. Find out who it is in the community who owes this money,” said Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas.

Cook County property tax grace period shortened

There has been some confusion in regards to the tax auction caused by the property tax grace period being cut from 12 months to 8 months. Some homeowners may not realize their tax bills are now subject to auction.

If your property is on the list, it is recommended that you immediately call an attorney in real estate law.
