Cook County Property Taxes

All Cook county townships have been reassessed and the values will stick 3 years if you do not fight now! Some township deadlines have already passed us up, Rogers Park is next with an appeal deadline of June 1!

You should be able to hop on the Cook County assessor's website, search for your address and see your new 2018 reassessment value and look for 2018 over 2017 prior. Whatever percentage this number increased to, your taxes will likely increase the July after next if it goes unchallenged.

Tell a friend they need to get on board now! Most homeowners do not see the reassessment notice warning of this increase and the 30 days to appeal because it often goes to their mortgage company when taxes are paid by the mortgage!

Check the deadline for your township here,

We have a wonderful and affordable option for your tax appeal service versus costly lawyers, and they are working on research for all of our clients who reach out ASAP.

Contact Farlap & Associates and never pay a percentage to fight your Cook County property taxes! 773-409-4405
