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.
