Treasurer Pappas Urges Owners to Pay Late Property Taxes to Avoid Upcoming Tax Sale

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local News

Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas urges property owners who have not paid property taxes that were due in 2022 to act quickly to avoid the Annual Tax Sale. To find out if your property is on the Annual Tax Sale list:

• Go to

• Use the purple box on the home page labeled “Your Property Tax Overview” and search using an address or Property Index Number (PIN)

• A banner with an urgent warning will appear if your property is on the Annual Tax Sale list.

You may also use the website to correct your mailing address. Each year the U.S. Postal Service returns thousands of certified notices sent to owners of properties on the Annual Tax Sale list because property owners have not kept their mailing addresses up to date. The Annual Tax Sale will occur Jan. 9-12, 2024, for properties with unpaid 2021 property taxes due in 2022. The Treasurer’s Office is mailing certified notices alerting property owners their unpaid taxes are to be offered for sale, which would put a lien against their properties. Payment can be made in five ways:

• Online for free at

• In person at any Chase Bank location in Illinois

• In person at any of more than 100 community banks where you have an account

• By mail

• In person at the Treasurer’s Office
