CHICAGO, Dec. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Next year's First Installment Cook County property tax bills are available on cookcountytreasurer.com , three months before the due date, Treasurer Maria Pappas said.
Tax Year 2019 First Installment taxes, due March 3, 2020, are 55 percent of the previous year's total tax, Pappas said. Property owners should consult with a tax professional about income tax deductions for this year.
"By knowing now what the tax bill is, homeowners can decide whether to pay next year's taxes before December 31," Pappas said.
