Cook County Delinquent Tax Information
About 80,000 people visit the Cook County Clerk’s office each year, just to find out if a parcel of real estate they own or are interested in has delinquent property taxes. Additionally, the Cook County Clerk’s office gets 96,000 calls a year, for the same reason. This doesn’t include all of the other phone calls and visitors they field.
In order to be more efficient, the Cook County Clerk’s office has now posted this information online. Visitors to this new database can view the status of properties with unpaid taxes in the last 20 years, including information about whether the taxes have been sold or not. This information helps not only homeowners and prospective purchasers, but real estate attorneys and title companies as well!
