The Cook County Treasurer has mailed the 2023 first installment tax bills to taxpayers in Cook County. This installment is an estimated bill equal to 55% of last year's (2022) tax bill. This bill does NOT reflect the 2023 proposed assessment or your 2023 exemptions. The payment due date is March 1, 2024.

There is good news for property owners who successfully appealed their 2022, 2021, or 2020 assessments. Your new tax bill reflects the savings from our appeal.

Information for Taxpayers 

Appealing Your 2023 Assessments

If you have retained our office to represent your interests in challenging your 2023 assessment, please remember that a final decision on appeal may take as long as nine (9) months. The tax savings will first be reflected on the second installment of your 2023 taxes (payable in the fall of 2024). This appeal will not affect your 2023 first installment bill. You are advised to pay your current tax bill by its due date.
