A Special E-News Message from the Village of River Forest

Reminder: Property Tax Bills Due October 1

If you have not paid it already, please remember to pay the second installment of your property tax bill by Thursday, October 1, 2020. Late fee penalties will be applied after this date. Payments can be made online at www.CookCountyTreasurer.com.  

Please review your tax bill. Exemptions are listed on the lower left side of tax bills, and the second installment should include all of the exemptions that have been applied for. For questions about exemptions or any other assistance, please call the Township Assessor's office at 708-366-2787.

All taxpayers should have their tax bill in their own name and address. To make a name change, visit www.CookCountyTreasurer.com and go to the “Your Property Tax Overview” box. Verify the information or follow the link to correct any errors. The correct name and address on a tax bill aids in confirming who is in-district for school enrollment and exemptions. A name change will NOT affect a property’s assessment in any way.
