Property Tax Information Website
In early April 2012, Cook County unveiled a one-stop property tax information website enabling residents to access more information than ever before at one location. The new property tax portal, accessed at www.cookcountypropertyinfo.com combines information from various county offices into one unified site, allowing residents access to a streamlined process to handle all their property tax issues. Taxpayers will no longer need to visit up to six county offices to piece together the record on their properties-that information is now all found on the Property Tax Portal.
Residents are able to access information on assessment appeals to the Board of Review; ownership and liens from the Recorder of Deeds; payments and refunds from the Treasurer; valuation, exemptions and appeals from the Assessor; prior bill statuses, delinquencies and Tax Increment Financing Districts (TIF) information from the Clerk and a plethora of other helpful information.
The site also includes a link that explains how property taxes work with an easy to understand flow chart. Another feature is that taxpayers may conduct a search by Taxing District name to view debt disclosures and /or download any financial statement uploaded by a particular agency.
