Put a Team of Property Tax Experts to Work Protecting Your Investment
There is nothing like the relief you feel when you hand a problem off to an expert. Your mind stops racing and you can turn your attention to other matters with confidence.
That’s especially true when it comes to something as complex and time consuming as appealing your property taxes. Doing the work on your own can be stress-inducing – and disappointing. Appealing your assessment without making the strongest possible case means leaving money on the table. And the strongest possible case requires a deep dive into the most up-to-date data to find the right properties for comparison.
At Kensington, we have decades of experience and a track record of success in assisting with property tax appeals for homeowners, property managers and commercial property owners in the Chicago area. It’s a record built on expertise spread across an entire team of property tax specialists. When you sign on with Kensington to research and manage your property tax appeal, you get more than a property tax expert: you get a whole team of property tax experts.
The Property Tax Team Advantage
Teamwork multiplies the expertise and ensures that nothing falls through the cracks.
Ensuring that you don’t pay more than your fair share of property taxes requires staying on top of the deadlines for every possible appeal of your assessment – one at the assessor’s office and a second appeal at the Board of Review. If you don’t, you are effectively underwriting the appeals of those who do.
It’s a process that requires diligent deadline management. That’s why we have a team of experts to keep our research up to date so that when new data becomes available to support a reduction, we’re on it. Our clients never have to worry about whether they are paying too much in property taxes, because we pursue every opportunity to appeal and use a proprietary algorithm to ensure the strongest possible case.
There are many advantages to having a team of taxpayer advocates on your side:
- Deep expertise in the strategies for appeal
- The ability to cull the right properties from the assessor’s data for making the strongest argument for reduction
- Reliable, responsive customer service, with timely updates on the appeal schedule and deadlines
- The confidence of knowing that you are not leaving any money on the table
- The opportunity to speak with an expert who knows your property tax situation
