Monday Afternoon Diversion: Cook County's Property Tax - The Movie

By Chuck Sudo in News on Feb 21, 2011 9:00PM

Back in November we wrote a post helping you to understand your property tax bills and why they're increasing in a recession. First installment property tax bills are due to go out soon, if they haven't already. Which means you that are homeowners are going to pop the same blood vessels you popped three months ago.

Paul Dailing at Tinley Park Patch created a nice video companion to our November post which cuts away at the Gordian Knot of Cook County property taxes even further. Plus Dailing gets a couple of nice digs at Garrison Keillor in, for no reason other than he can. Way to go, Paul!
