Property Tax Update

By June 23, 2020 News, Township News


The 2nd installment property tax bill is scheduled to be mailed on June 30th with a payment due date of October 1st instead of the normal August 3rd due date.  Due to the covid 19 pandemic, taxpayers are being granted 90 days in which to pay their property tax bill with no accruing of late penalties if paid on or before October 1st.

Please check your tax bill, once you receive it, to ensure that any exemptions(s) you may qualify for where applied. If your tax bill does not reflect your exemption(s) please contact us immediately.

The Annual Tax Sale of delinquent properties has been postponed per the Cook County Treasurer, Maria Pappas until further notice.

The 2020 Reassessment for all south suburban townships is upon us.  Reassessment notices for Thornton Township are scheduled to be mailed July 27th, taxpayers will be able to file an appeal after receiving their notice until September 1st.  Should the taxpayer miss the filing date, he or she can file their appeal with the Board of Review through our office.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
