2019 property assessment notices were mailed by the Cook County Assessor’s office on August 27th to Thornton Township property owners. The following cities, towns, and villages are in Thornton Township: Blue Island (southern edge), Burnham, Calumet City, Dixmoor, Dolton, East Hazel Crest, Glenwood (northern 1/4), Harvey, Hazel Crest, Homewood (northeast half), Lansing (northern half), Markham (eastern 1/4), Phoenix, Posen, Riverdale, South Holland, and Thornton. The one month window to appeal your 2019 assessed value is now open until the deadline of September 27th.
We suggest property owners review their assessments annually and appeal whenever there is a strong evidence based argument that your home may not be assessed fairly. Thornton Township’s next triennial reassessment is scheduled for 2020. However, if you feel that your assessment is not fair there is no need to wait to appeal, property owners have the right to appeal every year at the Assessor’s office and at the Board of Review. If you’d like a professional opinion on your home’s assessed value as it compares to similar properties in your neighborhood contact us for a free, no obligation, review and analysis of your home.
