In case you missed it, in Dan Patlak's first term on the Cook County Board of Review, tax bills have gone out on time. This is the first time in 34 years that Cook County Property Tax Bills have gone out on time. This is important because it will save local taxing bodies millions of dollars. This in turn, saves tax payers millions of dollars.
"For the first time in 34 years property tax bills were mailed on time and local governments were spared the necessity of borrowing money to meet their daily operating expenses. This saves taxpayers throughout Cook county millions of dollars in unnecessary spending." - Commissioner Dan Patlak.
This was reported in the local news on CBS Local.
