Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas announced on Jan. 4 that the first installment property taxes due on March 1 are now due on April 3.

Gov. Pritzker signed HB 5189 into law last month, making April 3 the new due date, County Treasurer’s officials said.

“Delaying a month is the right thing to do in order to give taxpayers some breathing room after Second Installment bills were late last year,” Pappas said. “Many people continue to struggle financially amid high inflation.”

The first installment bill will go into the mail in late February or early March but bills are available online at for payment or viewing, officials explained.
