Appeal Deadlines Suspended as Cook Assessor’s Office Manages the COVID-19 Threat
With health and safety as the primary concern at the moment, the Cook County Assessor’s Office has temporarily suspended the deadlines for appealing your property tax assessment and the physical office is temporarily closed to the public.
If you live in one of the nine townships where the appeals window was open as of March 19, that means you can still file an appeal online, and the processing of appeals will continue. Residential property owners can also file applications for any of the various exemptions online as well.
If you live in one of the townships where assessment notices have not yet gone out, new dates for your appeal window will be announced as soon as they are available.
