Cook County Board of Review Opens For 2018 Appeals
The Cook County Board of Review has opened 2018 property tax appeals for the first group of 11 townships. The Board’s deadline to appeal your 2018 assessed value is August 30th. Below are the townships that are currently open in Group 1:
- Elk Grove
- New Trier
- Norwood Park
- Oak Park
- River Forest
If you missed your appeal opportunity at the Assessor’s office earlier in the year, or if you did appeal and weren’t satisfied with the result, you have a second opportunity to appeal at the Board of Review. Appealing your home’s 2018 assessed value is the only way 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. Assessments can be appealed every year, regardless of when a township was reassessed.
Contact us before the August 30th deadline for a free, no obligation, professional analysis of your home’s assessment level 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 choose 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.
