Property owners who have not paid their 2017 taxes will have their properties offered in a tax sale for investors on Friday, May 3, 2019. Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas said that there about 1,000 homes owned by senior citizens whose homes are in jeopardy of being offered at the May 3rd tax sale per her February 14th press release. Pappas also reminded senior citizens to re-apply for their Senior Citizen’s Property Tax Exemption which would help them avoid the tax sale. Seniors have to re-apply for the senior citizen tax exemption every year.
