Second Installment Property Tax Bills Delayed

1024 683 Gayle Curcio

Northfield Township Assessor Alida Nally would like residents to know that Cook County
second installment 2021 property tax bills are delayed. The projected timeline for these bills to
be mailed is late Fall 2022. Property taxes in Cook County are collected one year in arrears and
paid in two installments.


Second Installment tax bills have traditionally been due on the first business day of August.
Before the treasurer’s office can print and mail the second installment bills, the state, county and
local agencies must issue data for assessment appeals, the state equalization factor, exemptions
and the local tax rates. The anticipated timeline for this to be completed is now late Fall 2022.
Delays in property tax bills are being attributed to the implementation of a new integrated
property tax system in Cook County.


It is important to note that the delay in 2021 second installment tax bills means homeowners (or
their escrow) will have to be prepared to pay this 2021 property tax bill late in the year and then
turn around and be prepared to pay their first installment 2022 bills typically due early March 2023. You may visit cookcountytreasurer.com for property tax bill information.


We will update our residents as new information is available. If you have any specific concerns
or questions please feel free to reach out to my office, you can email us at:
propertytaxhelp@northfieldtownship.com or call (847)724-8300.

940 788 Gayle Curcio

Join us for the inaugural Glow Fore It! Glow-in-the-Dark Golf Outing to benefit the Northfield Township Food Pantry to be held on October 1st, 2022 at the Glenview Prairie Club. Dinner and drinks will be served starting at 5:30 p.m. with a shotgun start for golf at approximately 7 p.m.

Proceeds from this event will benefit the Northfield Township Food Pantry. The Northfield Township Food Pantry was started close to 50 years ago to assist Township residents who are struggling with food insecurity. In April 2003, the Pantry became a 501c3 organization and an agency of the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Today, over 1,200 Township families are eligible to visit the Pantry to receive perishable and non-perishable food items and grocery store cards.

No tax dollars are used to supply the Pantry. The Pantry is sustained entirely by residents, civic organizations, schools, businesses and the faith community who generously donate food items, grocery store cards and cash.

Registration for this event will open soon, and space for players will be limited. Social tickets for non-golfers will also be available.

For questions or sponsorship opportunities, please contact Roxanne Dunn, Communications & Community Outreach Coordinator at roxanne.dunn@northfieldtownship.com or 847-724-8300.

Deadline to Apply for Property Tax Exemptions is August 26, 2022

1024 683 Gayle Curcio

Northfield Township Assessor Alida E. Nally, CIAO, wants to inform residents that Cook County Assessor Fritz Kaegi announced that Friday, August 26, 2022 is the deadline for homeowners to apply for their 2021 property tax exemptions. 

From the Cook County Assessor’s Office: 

“My goal is to ensure that homeowners receive all the money-saving exemptions to which they are entitled,” Assessor Kaegi said. “Homeowners can visit our website to apply online for exemptions they may be eligible to receive or check the status of their auto-renewed exemptions for this year.”

Assessor Kaegi sent notices in April to hundreds of thousands of households notifying them that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Illinois legislature has allowed for the automatic renewal of many exemptions. For most property owners there is no need to reapply. State law requires an audit of auto-renewed exemptions. Any households selected for audit were mailed forms that allow them to re-verify their exemptions online or by mail.

The following exemptions will automatically renew for homeowners who received them last year (tax year 2020) and remained eligible this year (tax year 2021).

  • Homeowner Exemption (annual auto-renewal)
  • Senior Exemption (annual auto-renewal)
  • Senior Freeze Exemption (2021 auto-renewal)
  • Persons with Disabilities Exemption (2021 auto-renewal)
  • Veterans with Disabilities Exemption (2021 auto-renewal)

Please Note: Longtime and Returning Veterans Exemptions will not auto-renew this year.

To explain the recent changes and improvements to the exemption application process, the Assessor’s Office will host a Virtual Workshop on Tuesday, August 23, 2022.

Representatives from the Assessor’s Office will explain how homeowners can check which exemptions are already applied to their property and how to apply online if needed.

  • Check to see which exemptions have been applied:

Second Installment Cook County Property Tax Bills Delayed

1024 683 Gayle Curcio

Northfield Township Assessor Alida E. Nally, CIAO, wants to inform residents that Cook County second installment property tax bills will be delayed. The projected timeline for these bills to be mailed and paid is late Fall 2022. Property taxes in Cook County are collected one year in arrears. Tax bills are mailed in installments twice a year.


First installment 2021 tax bills were mailed late January and were due March 1, 2022. The first installment tax amount is 55% of the previous year’s total taxes. Second installment tax bills are normally mailed by the first of July and due on the first business day of August. Delays in the issuance of property tax bills are being attributed to the implementation of a new integrated property tax management system in Cook County.


It is important to note that the delay in 2021 second installment tax bills means homeowners (or their escrow) will have to be prepared to pay this 2021 property tax bill late Fall 2022 and be prepared shortly after to pay their first installment 2022 bills in March 2023. Before the treasurer’s office can print and mail the second installment bills, the state, county and local agencies must issue data of assessment appeals, the state equalization factor, exemptions and the local tax rates.

Northfield Township Food Pantry Gears up for Summer Stock with the Northbrook Farmers Market

Summer Stock Day Restocks Food Pantry Shelves
Northbrook Farmers Market once again partnering with the Northfield Township Food Pantry to help restock food pantry shelves with household cleaning and personal hygiene products. Summer Stock 2022, sponsored by our friends at Edward Jones — Northbrook, is Wednesday, July 20. Items of particular need include paper towels, toilet paper, hand sanitizer, laundry detergent, dish soap, women’s personal hygiene products, and other dry goods — all items that cannot be purchased with food stamps, but certainly are necessities. There will be a jar for cash donations, which helps the pantry purchase food and supplies as needed, said Township Supervisor Shiva Mohsenzadeh.


Market organizers are grateful to Omar Zaki and Julie Grobman of Edward Jones–Northbrook for their generous donation that helps defray expenses associated with the event. “We are honored to sponsor a collection drive for the Food Pantry,” said Zaki. “We think it’s great that our local farmers market makes this effort to help those who need assistance. It’s all about community.”


As always, volunteers will be available to help unload cars for those needing assistance with their donations. Just come to the Welcome Booth.


Northfield Township will offer information about the pantry and other services at their drop-off table. Additionally, every Wednesday volunteers collect fresh produce from farmers, for a total of 65,000 pound over the years.


The market is open Wednesdays, 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the parking lot of Meadow Plaza, Cherry Lane and Meadow Road. For more information, visit www.NorthbrookFarmersMarket.org.
