Thousands of homeowners in Cook County, Illinois will receive up to $883 in property tax refunds. These refunds will be given after the homeowners have overpaid their first installment of taxes in 2021. The overpayment happened due to property owners who were excluded from the exemptions which could have lowered the amount they had to pay. 

 According to MARCA, those who were excluded were homeowners, disabled persons, senior citizens, and senior freeze. Spokesperson Andrew Gavrilos stated that Cook County’s Treasurer Maria Pappas announced that the refunds will be distributed through checks. The distribution will begin this week and will continue for the next few months until all refunds are distributed.
