Board of Review Opens Group 7 for 2020 Appeals

The Cook County Board of Review has opened 2020 property tax appeals for the seventh group of townships. The Board’s deadline to appeal your 2020 assessed value is December 15, 2020. Below are the townships that are currently open in Group 7:

  • Cicero
  • Lake View
  • Lyons
  • Maine
  • Orland
  • Schaumburg

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 2020 assessed value is the only way to achieve property tax relief on your second installment property tax bill in July 2021, other than selling your home or claiming a new exemption. Assessments can be appealed every year, regardless of when a township was reassessed.

The deadline for appealing your assessment at the Assessor’s office is June 7th.

We recommend reviewing your assessment annually, especially in a reassessment year, to ensure you do not pay more than your fair share in property taxes.

Successfully appealing in a reassessment year may provide 3 years of savings on your future property tax bills.

Cook County townships are divided into 3 groups for the purposes of triennial reassessments. Lake View is in the city group which was reassessed in 2015 and will next be reassessed in 2018. If you missed your opportunity to appeal in 2015 or 2016 this is your last opportunity to appeal your assessment before you are reassessed in 2018.

Property Tax Appeal Expertise that Adds Up

lakeview-sm

When it comes to finding the right property tax appeal service, expertise can make all the difference.

One former Kensington client learned that all too well.

The client owned a home in Lake View Township valued at $1.3 million. Over a four-year period beginning in 2014, we used our proprietary algorithm and a team of experienced analysts to help the homeowner make the strongest possible case for reducing the assessed value of their home.

The result was property tax savings of $16,475.80 over four years – an average of $4,118.95 per year.

But when an acquaintance referred the homeowner to one of our competitors in 2018, the client decided to give the new company a try. The competitor managed to achieve savings of about $500. Spread out over the next three years, the reduction in their assessment will yield roughly $166 in savings per year.
