Cook County First Installment Property Tax Bill Now Available Online

The Office of the Cook Country Treasurer recently released good news for property owners. The First Installment property tax bill, due on March 1st, has been posted online.

This is the earliest the Office has accepted First Installment payments.

The Office provided the following instructions for looking up and paying the property tax bill:

  • Go to and select “Make an Online Payment” and use your 14-digit Property Index Number (PIN)
  • Download and print your bill from the website and either:
    • Mail it to the Treasurer’s Office, or
    • Pay in person at a Chase bank branch or the Treasurer’s Office

The Office encourages taxpayers to speak with a trusted accountant or tax advisor for more information about 2018 income tax deductions.

Important note — remember, if you have a mortgage, your lender is most likely taking your monthly tax payment and escrow and paying these on your behalf — so don’t pay twice! Check with your loan office if you are unsure.
