Cook County Treasurer's Office - 2/25/2020
Cook County property owners would get an extra four months to pay delinquent taxes before their land is offered at the Tax Sale under a state bill championed by county Treasurer Maria Pappas, according to a story by Daily Line.
The bill (SB3356), sponsored by State Sen. Elgie Sims (D-Chicago) and State Sen. Laura Murphy (D-Des Plaines), would delay the county’s annual tax sale until September, 13 months after second-installment property taxes are due. The existing law requires the county to auction off delinquent properties by May, giving taxpayers a nine-month window to make late payments.
Pappas packed dozens of elected officials and community leaders behind her for a news conference in the county building on Monday.
