On May 21, 2020, the Cook County Board of Commissioners passed Ordinance 20-2479 which states:

While the second installment for the 2019 tax year remains due on August 3, 2020, in accordance with 35 ILCS 200/21-40(C)(1)(A) and Section 21-40(C)(1)(B), the Cook County Board of Commissioners declares that real property owners in Cook County are adversely impacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic and stay-at-home orders issued by the State.  Due to such adverse impact on Cook County real property owners, no interest penalties for any late payment of the August 3, 2020, second property tax installment for the 2019 tax year will accrue until after October 1, 2020, and payments made on or before October 1, 2020, in regard to the second installment will be considered by the Cook County Collector as filed and paid timely.
