Updates on Prepayment of Property Taxes - Township Assessor Ali ElSaffar

 

I was at the Cook County Treasurer’s office on Thursday, December 28, and learned of a few things regarding the prepayment of property taxes that I wanted to share.

First, there has been a huge increase in prepayments compared to last year.  Last year, the Treasurer received $14.3 million in prepayments from 1,700 people.  As of Thursday this year, the office had received $407 million from 63,000 people.   That’s a thirty-seven fold increase, and taxpayers still have a few more days in which to make prepayments!

In recent weeks, there has been a dramatic increase in inquiries about paying Cook County property taxes early.  According to Oak Park Township Assessor Ali ElSaffar, the motivation for the increased interest in early tax payments is the change in federal tax law being considered by the US Congress.
