Cook County Board of Review sponsors property tax appeal seminars
On Monday, March 14th at 6:30 pm at the American Legion Memorial Civic Center located at 6140 Dempster Street in Morton Grove, Cook County Board of Review Commissioner Michael M. Cabonargi will hold a seminar with Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin and Niles Township Assessor Scott Bagnall on how homeowners may appeal their property assessment and lower their property tax bills. In response to historical lows in the housing market, Commissioner Cabonargi is organizing taxpayer appeal seminars throughout Cook County. These seminars are opportunities for individual homeowners to seek relief in their property taxes due to a depressed market and over-valuations to their homes. Cabonargi said, “I will not stand by as my neighbors are taxed out of their homes. The Board of Review can provide real relief to struggling homeowners.” The presentation will explain how to file an appeal and how an appeal is granted. Attendees are asked to bring their property tax bills in order to more effectively file an appeal should they feel their residence is over-assessed. Staff from the Board of Review will be available to answer questions and to help complete appeal forms. The only requirement for a review of property assessments is a timely completed appeal form filed with the Board of Review. Appeals for property located in Niles and Maine Townships are due by March 23rd. Please contact Commissioner Cabonargi’s office at (312) 603-5560 with any questions.
