Client News & Notes
Tax Bill FAQs and How Tax Bills Are Calculated
2nd Installment Tax Bills are out in Cook County. Get answers to Tax Bill FAQs. Did you know that your first installment tax bill in Cook County represents 55% of your prior year’s total taxes paid? Your second installment reflects all changes in tax rates, the state multiplier, assessments and exemptions. The first and second tax bills are typically equal in all other Illinois counties.
Help us Meet Agency Deadlines
Please remember that you only have 30 days to file an appeal. So that we may file your tax appeal on time, please do not delay returning any appeal documents that we send to you. We file appeals at both county agencies – the Assessor’s Office and the Board of Review, as long as we have evidence that supports an assessment reduction. Reassessments and appeals are underway in Cook County, including Proviso (due 8/14), Orland & Northfield townships at Assessor’s Office. Hyde Park & Jefferson townships in Chicago are also open for appeals.
What We Can and Cannot Appeal
Did you know that in Cook County tax rates and the state multiplier cannot be appealed? With these rates out of your control, persistence in maintaining your assessment at a fair level is even more important. Let Raila PC help!
