Leyden Township 2020 Assessment Notices Mailed

How to Appeal Your Cook County Property Taxes2020 property assessment notices were mailed by the Cook County Assessor’s office on Tuesday, June 23rd 2020, to Leyden Township property owners. The following cities, towns, and villages are in Leyden Township: Bensenville (east portion), Elmwood Park, Franklin Park, Melrose Park (north portion), Norridge (west edge), Northlake (north portion), Park Ridge (south edge), River Grove, and Rosemont (southeast 3/4) Schiller Park. The window to appeal your 2020 assessed value is now open until the deadline of July 29th.

We recommend property owners review their assessments annually and appeal whenever there is a strong evidence based argument that your home may not be assessed fairly. Leyden Township was reassessed in 2019 but even if you appealed last year you may appeal your assessment again this year. A successful appeal in 2020 may result in two years of savings, until Leyden is reassessed in 2022. The best way to ensure you never pay more than your fair share in property taxes is to review your assessment every year and appeal whenever you have a strong basis for an appeal argument, no matter where your township is at in the triennial reassessment cycle.
