Cook County Treasurer's Office - 3/15/2020
Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas recently made an announcement that deserved far more attention than it received - both for what it says about the present, and more ominously, what it portends for the future, according to an editorial by the News-Gazette in Champaign, Illinois.
Pappas disclosed there are 57,515 property owners who need to pay their property taxes to avoid foreclosure at a May 8 Tax Sale. Pappas wants the Legislature to extend the payment deadline to avoid mass foreclosures.
