Real Estate Tax Deferral Program

There’s help for senior citizens

There’s help for senior citizens struggling to pay Cook County property taxes

 

With prescription prices and utility bills rising faster than Social Security payments, a taxrelief program can help senior citizens who are hard-pressed to pay their property taxes, Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas said today. 

 

Seniors whose annual household income is $55,000 or less can apply to the Senior Citizen Real Estate Tax Deferral Program for loans to cover property tax payments.

  • Submit the completed application and copies of the required documents to the Treasurer’s Office
