If you own property in the Rogers Park community, you recently received a “Notice of Proposed Assessed Valuation” from the Cook County Assessor’s Office. This assessed value of your property is one of the bases upon which your property taxes are determined.
For most Rogers Park property owners, the assessment levels were reduced. However, a few property owners may have seen an increase
Regardless, if you believe your property assessment is improper, you have a right to appeal that assessment. You don’t need a lawyer; you can do it yourself. Join us for a seminar to learn how:
Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin, Cook County Assessor James Houlihan and I are sponsoring a PROPERTY ASSESSMENT APPEAL SEMINAR for Rogers Park residents, Wednesday, July 15th, 7:00 p.m., at the Warren Park Fieldhouse, 6601 N. Western.
Staff from Assessor Houlihan and Commissioner Suffredin’s offices will be present to answer your questions regarding assessment appeals and exemptions.
The seminar will include general information on the assessment process, avenues for assessment appeals, resources available for verifying that an assessed value is fair and accurate, and a summary of important property tax exemptions available to Cook County residents.
The deadline for Rogers Park Township property owners to submit appeals to the Cook County Assessor’s office is July 31st.
If you are unable to attend the seminar, Commissioner Larry Suffredin’s web site provides an excellent overview of the property tax reassessment and appeal process, including step-by-step instructions on how to appeal your assessment and links to all the relevant documents and web sites.
