Chicago Sun-Times - - TOP NEWS -

Cook County prop­erty taxes still must be paid, but if you’re a lit­tle short on cash this month, you have an ex­tra two months be­fore the 2019 sec­ond in­stall­ment is due.

It’s part of Cook County Trea­surer Maria Pap­pas’ ef­fort to of­fer a lit­tle help to folks strug­gling dur­ing the pan­demic.

The typ­i­cal due date for sec­ond-in­stall­ment taxes is Aug. 3.

“In my nearly 22 years as trea­surer, I’ve never told peo­ple not to pay their taxes,” Pap­pas said in a state­ment. “But the pan­demic has changed a lot of things. If you’ve lost your job and don’t have the money, you do not have to pay un­til Oct. 1, 2020.”
