sorry carl;

may have jumped the gun just now.
a colleague advises that the projected DUE date will be 11/3
(which means the mail-out date should be 10/3 or so)

the treasurer's web site seems to substantiate that speculation

You can probably expect them the early part of October. Make sure it has the Homeowners exemption applied, if you were entitled to it, based on you or the prior owner living in the property on Jan 1, 2007. You can go back 3 years and get a huge refund by filing a Certificate of Error, if you forgot to get the exemption in prior years.

Sure that's what they always tell you! You've got a better chance on winning the lotto than getting your tax bill in August. They are processed though because I saw the 2nd installment taxes for a house I just closed on and the title company kept the 2nd installment & will pay WHEN the bill ever comes out.

the august 1 date is a "target" that they have only hit 1 time in the last 14 years....

My own and many of my clients Schaumburg tax bills have gone down from the 2006 bill for the latest 2007 tax bill, due on November 3, 2008. Mine went down about 7%. The school districts came in much lower than last year, as well as several other municipal taxing bodies. Since it was a tri-ennial reassessment year, we were all expecting major increases. What a nice surprise and what a great Village to live in! Be sure to make sure you are getting the homeowners exemption, if you lived in the house on Jan 1st of that tax year. You may get a big refund if it was done wrong. I had a client of mine just get over $2000 back.

Alot of newer high end housing in the 500k range no doubt added to that raise in Bartlett.

Yes, up 7.2%-one of the higher ones. Good not to be in Barrington-up 14.9%.

Per the Daily Herald the Cook County Median tax bills for Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates and the Cook portion of Roselle are actually going to be less this year than last. The hundreds of us angry citizens at the the assessors meeting may have actually caused them some concern. We all need to get involved in matters that are important to us, whether it is schools, govenment, taxes, association, transportation or....

Amazing that this State runs with no property tax revenue on a timely basis!

Thanks!

I came up here from CA and you can call it the land of fruits and nuts but, at least you knew exactly when your tax bill was due the two times a year!
I'm amazed that the State of Illinois can function with soo many taxing entities involved in composing a property tax bill.....I guess I should not complain since it gives my money more time to collect what ever low interest the bank gives me while it sits.

Thanks for your answers!
