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!

Levy for Fiscal Year 2017 Passed

Levy for Fiscal Year 2017 Passed

The Oak Park Township Board of Trustees voted unanimously at the December 19th, 2017 board meeting to approve the property tax levy ordinance for Fiscal Year 2017.  The board meeting was preceeded by a public hearing and adoption of the levy took place after the public hearing.  The ordinance will result in a 2.5% increase over last year's levy extension.

Paying Property Taxes Early Could Reduce Federal Income Taxes

PAYING PROPERTY TAXES EARLY COULD

REDUCE FEDERAL INCOME TAXES

Contact:  Ali ElSaffar

Oak Park Township Assessor

(708) 383-8005

 

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.
