Complete a simple application. Tax Appeals Lake County will do a no cost property assessment analysis to determine if an appeal is warranted. If your property appears over assessed you will be e-mailed our agreement and authorization form that needs to be completed and returned to us by e-mail, fax, or regular mail along with a $25.00 retainer. The $25.00 retainer will be applied toward our fee of 25% of your first year savings. If your appeal is not successful, the $25.00 will be refunded.
Once we receive your forms you are done! We monitor all deadlines and follow your file through the difficult appeal process. Tax Appeals Lake County will handle every aspect of your appeal case from start to finish.
