Exemptions Can Save You Money

Are you aware that many counties have at least five exemptions and Cook County has eight? If you live in your home or recently improved it; are a senior citizen or long-time resident; are a veteran or disabled person — one of our case analysts can help you make sure your exemptions are accurate.  If exemptions are not accurate, you may be eligible for appeals or refunds as far as three years back – sometimes totaling hundreds of dollars.

Competitive Rates, Quality Customer Service & Persistence

You pay only if Raila & Associates, PC helps you win tax relief. With each favorable agency decision, clients are typically billed a percentage of the first year’s estimated tax savings (savings can last up to three years). The firm educates consumers and clients about their rights and responsibilities in the assessment and appeal process; informs clients of their case status and decisions; and helps them understand their tax bills and invoices. Most importantly, the firm persistently pursues subsequent agency appeals until fair tax levels are achieved.
