Board of Review Opens Group 2 for 2020 Appeals

The Cook County Board of Review has opened 2020 property tax appeals for Norwood Park. The Board’s deadline to appeal your 2020 assessed value is October 27th.

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.

Cook County Assessor Extends Deadline for 9 Townships

May 1stThe Cook County Assessor’s Office has extended the deadline for 2020 property tax appeals for nine Townships. The Assessor’s deadline to appeal your 2020 assessed value is now May 1st for the following townships:

  • Evanston
  • Norwood Park
  • Rogers Park
  • New Trier
  • Barrington
  • River Forest
  • Riverside
  • Oak Park
  • Palos

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. Barrington, New Trier, Norwood Park, and Evanston Townships were 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 Barrington, New Trier, Norwood Park, and Evanston are reassessed in 2022. Rogers Park Township’s next triennial reassessment is scheduled for 2021. River Forest, Riverside, Oak Park, and Palos triennial reassessments occurred between February and March of this year. Any savings received in 2020 for River Forest, Riverside, Oak Park, and Palos will last for 3 years, until the next triennial reassessment in 2023. 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.

Appeal Deadlines Suspended as Cook Assessor’s Office Manages the COVID-19 Threat

Appeal Deadlines SuspendedWith health and safety as the primary concern at the moment, the Cook County Assessor’s Office has temporarily suspended the deadlines for appealing your property tax assessment and the physical office is temporarily closed to the public.

If you live in one of the nine townships where the appeals window was open as of March 19, that means you can still file an appeal online, and the processing of appeals will continue. Residential property owners can also file applications for any of the various exemptions online as well.

If you live in one of the townships where assessment notices have not yet gone out, new dates for your appeal window will be announced as soon as they are available.

Assessment Notices Mailed For New Trier and Norwood Park

Assessment notices have been mailed by the Cook County Assessor’s office for New Trier and Norwood Park. If you own property in either of these townships the one month window to appeal your 2017 assessment at the Assessor’s office is now open. The deadline to file an appeal is April 3rd.Cook County Property Tax Appeal

Cook County has 38 townships which it divides into three groups for the purposes of reassessment: city, north suburbs and south suburbs. New Trier and Norwood Park townships are both located in the north suburbs group.  The next scheduled triennial reassessment year for the north suburbs group is 2019. However, you may appeal your assessment every tax year, including in non-reassessment years. Due to regular changes in the housing market we believe reviewing your assessment annually, to determine whether or not an appeal makes sense, is in your best interest.
