Board of Review Opens Group 4 Townships for Property Tax Appeals
The Cook County Board of Review has opened the fourth group of townships for 2018 property tax appeals. If your property is located in one of the 4 townships listed below the Board’s deadline to appeal your 2018 assessed value is November 13th.
- Hyde Park
- Lake View
Each year homeowners have an opportunity to appeal their property’s assessment at the Assessor’s office and at the Board of Review. You do not need to have filed an appeal at the Assessor’s office in order to file an appeal at the Board of Review. In addition, even if you appealed successfully at the Assessor’s office you still have an opportunity to file a second appeal for tax year 2018 at the Board of Review. Appealing at the Board may result in additional savings.
If you do not appeal at the Board of Review you will not have another opportunity to achieve property tax relief on your second installment property tax bill in July 2019, other than selling your home or claiming a new exemption. Remember, assessments can be appealed every year, regardless of when a township was reassessed.
Contact us before the November 13th deadline for a free, no obligation, professional analysis of your property’s assessed value in comparison to similar properties in your neighborhood. If we don’t think you have a strong case for an appeal, we’ll tell you. If we feel there is a strong factual based argument to be made then you can decide if you would like to hire us to assist you with the appeal. There is no risk in using our service because you pay nothing unless your appeal is successful.
