Evanston’s Property Tax Assessment Review Office reminds residents that the Cook County Treasurer’s Annual Tax Sale is scheduled to start on May 4, 2018. There are 75 Evanston properties that have delinquent 2016 tax bills.
Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas urges property owners to pay their delinquent bills immediately to prevent their unpaid taxes from being offered at the Annual Tax Sale. Many owners are most vulnerable to the Tax Sale in part because the U.S. Postal Service has returned their bills and subsequent notices.
Owners can visit cookcountytreasurer.com to see if their taxes are delinquent for Tax Year 2016 (originally due in 2017). To ensure that payments are recorded before the Tax Sale begins, owners can do one of the following things:
- Pay at a Chase branch until April 28, 2018 with a certified check, cashier's check, money order or cash. Personal checks are not accepted
- Pay at cookcountytreasurer.com by 11:59 p.m. on April 30, 2018
- Pay at the Treasurer's Office, 118 N. Clark St., Room 112, Chicago, Illinois, until the day before the sale.
A complete list of properties with delinquent taxes to be offered at the tax sale is updated weekly and published at cookcountytreasurer.com. The list can be downloaded in PDF and spreadsheet formats. Read more here.
