FIRST INSTALLMENT TAX BILLS ARE DUE MARCH 3
First Installment property tax bills for tax year 2019 are now out. Property taxes are paid in two installments. The first installment is 55% of a properties total tax bill for the previous year, and will be due on March 3, 2020.
Taxpayers should note that first installment tax bills will not reflect homeowner, senior citizen or other exemptions, nor will they reflect the impact of successful assessment appeals filed for tax year 2019. Exemptions and successful appeals will instead appear on second installment bills, along with the effect of changes in the tax levies of local governments.
Total tax bills for the year should be calculated by late June, at which time second installment bills will be issued. The amount due on the second installment will be the total annual tax bill for each property, less the first installment payment.
ALL EXEMPTION FORMS FOR NEW AND RENEWALS ARE NOW AVAILABLE AND DUE FEBRUARY 28. YOU CAN FIND THESE FORMS ONLINE AT WWW.COOKCOUNTYASSESSOR.COM OR ON THE ASSESSOR'S PAGE ON THIS SITE OR IN THE LOBBY OF OUR TOWNSHIP OFFICES.
