Don’t pay more than your fair share of property taxes! The amount of your taxes is based in significant part on the assessed value of your property, which is determined by the Cook County Assessor’s office. You have a right to appeal your property assessment, and possibly reduce your tax bill. You don’t need a lawyer; you can do it yourself.
The deadline for Rogers Park property owners to submit appeals to the Cook County Assessor’s office is Thursday, July 8th.
You can submit an appeal if you believe the assessed value of your property is too high, or if you have other issues concerning your property assessment.
I encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to correct any assessment errors on your property. Unless you recently received a notice of reassessment, the assessed valuation of your property has not increased.
Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin’s web site provides an excellent overview of the property assessment and appeal process, including step-by-step instructions on how to appeal your assessment and links to all the relevant documents and web sites. CLICK HERE for information on the appeals process.
Commissioner Suffredin’s office is also offering personal one-on-one assistance in filing an appeal and answering questions about the appeals process.
Call his district office at 847-864-1209 with any questions or to schedule an appointment for assistance with filing an appeal.
