First Installment Property Tax Bills are Due March 3

First installment property tax bills for tax year 2014 arrived this week. Property taxes are paid in two installments. The first installment bill is fifty-five percent (55%) of the total property tax bill for the previous year, and that will be due on March 3, 2015.

Taxpayers should note that first installment tax bills will not reflect homeowner, senior citizen or other exemptions, nor will they reflect successful assessment appeals that were filed for tax year 2014. The first installment is just an estimate based on what was paid last year. When the second installment bill is mailed in the summer, it will reflect all exemptions for which the property is eligible as well any savings due to successful 2014 tax appeals.

Details about Paying Taxes.

If money for property taxes is paid into an escrow account with a taxpayer’s mortgage company, the financial institution should receive the tax bill electronically even if the taxpayer also receives a copy of the bill. Taxpayers with property tax escrows held by their mortgage companies should not pay property taxes on their own. If they do, an overpayment of property taxes may result. 

Property owners who do not have mortgage companies paying their taxes can make tax payments in person, by mail, or on-line at the Cook County Treasurer’s web site, www.cookcountytreasurer.com. In-person payments are accepted at the Cook County Treasurer’s downtown Chicago office at 118 N. Clark Street and at any Chase Bank in the Chicago area.

If you have questions about your property taxes, contact the New Trier Township Assessor’s Office at 847-446-8200 or email Assessor Jan Churchwell at jchurchwell@newtriertownship.com or Deputy Assessor Lois Cross at lcross@newtriertownship.com.
