Cook County Treasurer's Office - 1/13/2020
Cook County might owe you thousands of dollars, and all it takes is an Internet connection to get it back.
The Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas says thousands of people are owed property tax refunds, and it's as simple as entering your address on the treasurer's website.
Among those who recently received a refund was Carol Adams, a former secretary of the Illinois Department of Human Services and former CEO of the DuSable Museum.
"I thought I was on top of everything. I wasn't expecting anything," she said.
