Cook County Deadline to File for Property Tax Exemptions is Friday, August 4
July 27, 2023
The deadline is fast approaching for Cook County homeowners to apply for property tax exemptions. The most common exemption is the Homeowner Exemption, which can save a Cook County homeowner up to $950 per year. There are also exemptions available to seniors, returning veterans, people with disabilities and long-time homeowners. While many renew automatically, the “Senior Freeze,” Veterans with Disabilities and Long-Time Homeowner exemptions must be reapplied for every year. New homeowners, first-time applicants and those that need to reapply can do so at the Cook County Assessor’s Office website.
