West Chicago valuation statistics from the Assessor’s office can be found here. Homeowners in West Chicago Township have one month to appeal their assessment at the Assessor’s office (there is also a second opportunity later in the year at the Board of Review). The deadline for appealing your assessment at the Assessor’s office is Tuesday, September 25th.
We strongly recommend reviewing your assessment annually, especially in a year when your township is reassessed, to ensure you do not pay more than your fair share in property taxes. If you think your assessment is not comparable to similar properties you should consider appealing (if you would like a free second opinion contact us). Successfully appealing in a reassessment year may provide 3 years of savings on your future property tax bills. The amount of success you are able to achieve on your property tax appeal depends on the strength of your appeal argument.
The first step in a property tax appeal for your home is to conduct a factual analysis of comparable properties. Expertise and experience go a long way towards identifying the strongest comparable properties, which in turn can make a big difference in the amount of success you have with your appeal. Contact us before the September 25th deadline and we will run an analysis and provide you with a free, no-obligation, professional opinion on your assessed value by comparing your home’s assessment to others in your neighborhood.
