Cook County Treasurer

On Cook County property tax bills, property owners can not only see where their taxes go, but also the total debt each government owes. Treasurer Maria Pappas says property taxpayers are "on the hook" for all the debt accumulated by cities, counties, school districts, and other taxing bodies.

On today's WVIK News Focus, Michelle O'Neill reports Pappas is encouraging other counties in Illinois to do the same.
