Notes about our property data

Properties without a taxpayer name are likely tax exempt. Some properties have a blue "Chicago-owned land" label. To find all Chicago-owned land, past and present, use the "Chicago-owned land" map below. Building age data is not always reliable. This feature was supported by the Metropolitan Planning Council.

You can purchase all of our Cook County data in the Map & Data Store.

Data update schedule

Property information is updated frequently; properties with frequent lookups are updated weekly and others are updated monthly. Cook County updates tax information and property classification after the second tax bill goes out (mid summer), and assessment information is updated when a triad is re-assessed (varies based on location) or for special circumstances (like the COVID-19 pandemic).
