Sale of Delinquent Property Taxes Starts May 4
Submitted by the City of Evanston

Evanston’s Property Tax Assessment Review Office reminds residents that the Cook County Treasurer’s Annual Tax Sale is scheduled to start on May 4, 2018. There are 75 Evanston properties that have delinquent 2016 tax bills. 

Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas urges property owners to pay their delinquent bills immediately to prevent their unpaid taxes from being offered at the Annual Tax Sale. Many owners are most vulnerable to the Tax Sale in part because the U.S. Postal Service has returned their bills and subsequent notices.

Owners can visit to see if their taxes are delinquent for Tax Year 2016 (originally due in 2017). To ensure that payments are recorded before the Tax Sale begins, owners can do one of the following things:

A complete list of properties with delinquent taxes to be offered at the tax sale is updated weekly and published at The list can be downloaded in PDF and spreadsheet formats.

If your home is on the tax sale list, but your lender is supposed to pay the taxes, contact your lender immediately to request proof of payment. Submit that proof to the Treasurer's Office.

If the taxes on your home have already been sold, in order to avoid a loss of your property, pay the taxes, interest and fees to the Cook County Clerk.
