Cook County Treasurer's Office - 10/9/2020
Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas says her office owes thousands of property tax refunds, but the office needs help finding homeowners to pay them their money.
More than $100 million is waiting to be claimed, and in most cases Pappas says people have no idea they are owed a property tax refund, so she is getting creative to try to find people. Pappas has been hitting the airwaves on WVON/1690-AM to get the word out to connect consumers to their cash.
"If people knew that they had this money, then they would come and get it," Pappas said. "This is simply a matter of not knowing."
