Working with the Cook County Assessor’s Office, CDEL received the names of 542 senior citizens whose properties are subject to the annual Cook County tax sale, which began on April 3rd this year - earlier than in past years.  On March 21st, CDEL mailed letters to each of the senior citizens on the list advising them of the tax sale and informing them of the options available to them to avoid losing their property.  CDEL also reached out by telephone to all on the list and encouraged them to pay their taxes and file appropriate certificates of error for any exemptions to which they were entitled but of which they had not taken advantage.
