Learn how to appeal your property tax assessment and possibly lower your tax bill at a special workshop sponsored by County Commissioner Larry Suffredin, County Assessor Joe Berrios and my office. The workshop will be held on Wednesday, February 22nd, 6:30 p.m., at the Loyola Park Fieldhouse, 1230 W. Greenleaf (at the Lake).
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. 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, March 1st, 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. Please bring your property tax bill in order to more efficiently file an appeal. Staff from the Assessor’s office will be available to answer questions and help complete appeal forms.
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 March 1st deadline.
For assistance in filing your appeal, contact my staff assistant Michael Land at firstname.lastname@example.org or 773-338-5796.
I hope the information I provided you answers your questions about the property tax appeals process.
