Homeowners still have time to appeal their property tax assessment - Cook County has extended the original deadline of April 7th, 2020. Filing may be done online through the Cook County Assessor website.  Oak Park residents who need help may call Oak Park Township Assessor Ali ElSaffar's office at 708-383-8005; all appointments will be done via phone.

More information on the extension and how COVID-19 is impacting all property taxpayers is in this Wednesday Journal article.  "I can't tell you when the appeals period will end or if bills will be due as they regularly are," said ElSaffar.  "It is a reassessment period to remember."
