Oak Park 2019 Assessment Notices Mailed
Assessment notices for tax year 2019 were mailed by the Cook County Assessor’s office on Tuesday, March 19th to Oak Park property owners. The thirty day window to appeal your 2019 assessed value is now open until the deadline of Friday, April 19th.
We believe homeowners should review their assessments annually and appeal each year if there is a strong argument that their home may not be assessed fairly. Oak Park’s next triennial reassessment will be in 2020. However, if you feel that your assessment is not fair there is no need to wait to appeal, you have the option to appeal every year at the Assessor’s office and at the Board of Review. If you’d like a second opinion on your assessed value as it compares to similar homes in your neighborhood contact us for a free, no obligation, analysis of your home.
Property values in the Chicagoland area do not stay the same every year. They change regularly, as ownership changes, as homes are remodeled, and as new properties are constructed. The housing market changes frequently so don’t make the mistake that you should only appeal during your reassessment year.
If you contact us before the April 19th deadline we would be happy to review your property’s assessment against the current values of nearby comparable properties and provide our professional opinion on whether or not an appeal makes sense this year.
