Reminder: Pay First Installment Cook County Property Taxes Through May 3 with No Late Fee

Updated: May 3

Property taxes were due Tuesday, March 2, 2021, but there is no late fee for those paying their bill through Monday, May 3, 2021.


The Cook County Board of Commissioners in November waived for two months the 1.5 percent per month late fee on Tax Year 2020 First Installment property taxes. Taxpayers can pay the First Installment, due March 2, without a late fee, through May 3, 2021.

For those who cannot pay the full amount due, partial payments are accepted. After May 3, 2021, any balance due is charged 1.5 percent per month, as required by state law.
