Palos Township 2019 Assessment Notices Mailed
2019 property assessment notices were mailed by the Cook County Assessor’s office on Friday, April 5th to Palos Township property owners. The following towns are in Palos Township: Bridgeview (south ¼), Hickory Hills (south ¾), Orland Park (small northern part), Palos Heights (west ½), Palos Hills, Palos Park, Willow Springs (south portion), and Worth (west ¼). The 30 day window to appeal your 2019 assessed value is now open until the deadline of Monday, May 6th.
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. Palos Township’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, review and analysis of your home.
Home values in the Chicagoland area do not stay the same every year. They change frequently, as ownership changes, as homes are remodeled, and as new properties are constructed. Don’t make the mistake of only appealing during your property’s reassessment year.
If you contact us before the May 6th 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.
