This month, the Illinois Lottery is launching its inaugural Carolyn Adams Ticket for the Cure Instant Ticket, which I helped create back in 2013 to dedicate a ticket to the former Illinois Lottery director who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2007. . This ticket provides 100% of its proceeds to fight breast cancer in Illinois by providing education, awareness, research, and support programs in Illinois.

Diagnosis of this disease in Illinois has increased over time. Mammograms can help detect breast cancer early, allowing for more effective treatment. Join us as we raise awareness for this ticket and the funds it can generate to help support those affected by breast cancer in our state. We hope you will consider purchasing this ticket and encouraging others to do the same.

The Carolyn Adams Ticket for the Cure instant ticket costs $3, and players can win up to $50,000. The ticket is on sale now at more than 7,200 Illinois Lottery retailers across Illinois, and 100% of proceeds fund education, support, awareness, and research programs aimed at tackling breast cancer.

The deadline for Cook County property owners to avoid the Annual Tax Sale is fast approaching. Properties with unpaid 2020 property taxes (that were due in 2021) will be offered November 15 - 18, 2022.

Over $226 million is due on 55,857 homes, businesses and land. Less than $1,000 is owed on 14,189 properties in Chicago and 7,162 properties in suburban Cook County.

Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas is mailing certified notices informing property owners that their unpaid taxes are to be sold, which would put a lien against their properties. It is the first step in a process that can end with the loss of a home, business or land. In addition to the mailings, the Treasurer’s Office will publish delinquency property tax lists in area newspapers.

Owners can avoid the Tax Sale by paying the delinquent taxes and interest before the sale begins November 15. Check to see if your taxes are delinquent by visiting cookcountytreasurer.com. Use the box on the home page labeled “Avoid the Tax Sale” to search for your home or other property by entering a Property Index Number or an address. Property owners can also use the website to make sure they are receiving the exemptions for which they qualify. Exemptions include the homeowner exemption, senior exemption and senior freeze exemption.

Payment can be made in five ways:

  • Online for free at cookcountytreasurer.com
  • In person at any Chase Bank location
  • In person at any of more than 100 community banks where you have an account
  • By mail
  • In person at the Treasurer’s Office

Per Illinois law, an annual tax sale is conducted 13 months after the due date. But pandemic-related issues delayed the 2018 and 2019 tax sales. The 2018 Tax Sale was held in November 2021 and the 2019 Tax Sale was held this past May.
