A client recently discovered that some of the real estate taxes for parking spaces owned by association members had been sold.  As it turns out, the owners never updated the mailing addresses on their tax bills, and the bills were still going to the developer.

All owners should take the necessary steps to update the mailing address on their real estate tax bill to ensure that they receive a bill each year and to confirm that the bill has been paid, even if your mortgage company is paying your taxes through an escrow account.  Address changes must be made both for units and for parking spaces, if your parking space is deeded separately with its own PIN.

To update your mailing address, visit the Cook County Treasurer's website.  You'll need your PIN (you can find it by searching your address on the Cook County Assessor's website).  Select Payment--> Payment Status, enter your PIN and from the Mailing Information section, select "To update your mailing address, click here."  You will need to complete the form, have it notarized, and send it to the Cook County Treasurer.
