PROPERTY TAX APPEALS
REALTORS®’ GUIDE TO HELPING YOUR CLIENTS WITH PROPERTY TAX APPEALS
Ensure your clients know how to appeal their property tax assessments to avoid overpaying. Here is a streamlined overview of how to work with your clients on what can be a complicated issue.
Properties in Cook County are reassessed every three years , and property taxes are based on these assessments. By appealing your assessment, you may be able to significantly reduce your property tax bill. Once assessment notices are mailed, by township, a property owner has 30 days to file an appeal.
Notify your clients when their township opens!
- There is no cost to a property owner to file an appeal
- When you appeal to the Assessor or Board of Review, there is no chance an assessment will be increased as a result of appeal. In other words, there is no penalty; when an owner appeals, the assessment will either remain the same or be lowered.
- There are many tax professionals that can assist your clients with the process. Here is a list of C.A.R. member tax professionals.
