It’s not too late to appeal your property tax assessment and possibly lower your tax bill. The Cook County Board of Review has extended the deadline to appeal your assessment to this Tuesday, September 18th.
If you need help appealing your assessment or have any questions regarding your property tax bill, visit my 49th Ward Service (7356 N. Greenview) this Monday, September 17th, anytime from 12:00 noon to 7:00 p.m. A property tax appeal expert from Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin’s office will be available to assist you. No appointment is necessary.
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 and is updated every three years. This year was Rogers Park’s turn to be reassessed.
The time for appealing your assessment to the Assessor’s office has passed, but you can still appeal to the Board of Review. Even if you appealed to the Assessor’s office and received a reduction in your assessment, you may receive an additional reduction at the Board of Review.
If you are unable to visit my office Monday, you can appeal your assessment online. The Cook County Board of Review website provides an overview of the property tax appeal process, including step-by-step instructions on how to file an appeal.
Make sure you file your appeal before the Tuesday, September 18th, deadline.
I wish you the best of luck with your appeal.
