You may remember the recent article I wrote about the Senior Exemption in Cook County. I just want to remind you that although the original March 7 deadline was extended, the deadline to apply for the senior exemption is March 22.
Under legislation signed by Gov. Pat Quinn in August, senior citizens in Cook County no longer automatically get the exemption, which amounts to a few hundred dollars' credit on their second-installment tax bills, unless they file the appropriate paperwork.
Feel free to contact me with any questions.
