Cook County will accept Niles Township assessed value appeals September 12 through Wednesday October 11, 2017. This is for the purpose of appealing the 2017 Cook County assessed value for your property. I will hand deliver directly to Cook County all appeals and supporting evidence that are filed in my office.
My office will be open M-F, 8:00am – 4:00pm to assist taxpayers with the appeal process.
When coming to the office or an appeal seminar please remember to bring your 2016 2nd installment tax bill. If you wish to compare 2016 to 2015 then bring your 2015 2nd Installment tax bill also. The 2nd Installment tax bills are yellow (1st installment bills are blue).
As usual, local elected officials will work with me to present appeal preparation workshops. We are currently organizing a workshop for Tuesday September 19, at 6:30 pm at the Skokie Library. I will send a notice out by separate email. Also as usual I will extend office hours and or do whatever is required to make sure that every taxpayer has the opportunity to make informed appeal decisions.
There is plenty of time to prepare the appeals but because we do get quite busy in the office during appeal time, I ask that you wait with non appeal issues such as exemptions and certificates of error until after October 12. In other words, it is best that we focus on assessed value appeals only during the next 30 days.
