Learn how to appeal your property tax assessment and possibly lower your tax bill at a special workshop sponsored by Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin, Cook County Assessor Joe Berrios and my office. The workshop will be held on Wednesday, May 2nd, 6:30 p.m., at the Loyola Park Fieldhouse, 1230 W. Greenleaf (in the first floor gymnasium).
The assessed value of your property is one of the factors that determine the amount of property taxes you pay. This assessed value is determined by the Cook County Assessor.
The Assessor’s office this week mailed notices of the assessments to every property owner in Rogers Park. If you believe your property assessment is improper, you have a right to appeal that assessment.
If you own property in Rogers Park Township (Devon to the Evanston border, Kedzie to the Lake), you have until Wednesday, May 23rd, to submit an appeal to the Cook County Assessor.
At the workshop, you will learn how the assessment process works, how to file an appeal with the County Assessor’s office and how an appeal is granted. Staff from the Assessor’s office will be available to answer questions and help complete appeal forms.
Please bring a copy of your property tax bill or have your property index number (PIN) available. This information will help you more efficiently file an appeal.
If you are unable to attend the workshop, the Cook County Assessor’s website provides an overview of the property tax appeal process, including step-by-step instructions on how to appeal your assessment. For information on the appeals process and to file an appeal online, CLICK HERE.
Make sure you file your appeal before the May 23rd deadline.
For assistance in filing your appeal, contact my staff assistant, Michael Land at email@example.com or 773-338-5796.
I hope the information I provided you answers your questions about the property tax appeals process.
