PROPERTY ASSESSMENT REVIEW:
Our service begins with an in depth property assessment review. Our property tax appeal team utilizes a highly effective process that examines your property assessment though the different means of tax appeal options to determine if your property is accurately and fairly assessed. We will also examine your property for any errors that are contained on your property’s description with your township as well as verify you are receiving all the exemptions you are entitled to. If errors exist you could be overpaying your taxes year after year. In some cases we could get you a refund from the prior year with the correction of those errors.
Tax Appeals Lake County recommends a property review be completed every tax year in Lake, Mchenry and Dupage counties where your property assessment could change yearly. The rapidly changing real estate markets could cause assessment fluctuations. Additional market factors could cause your property to be over assessed. Examples of some of the reasons to have your property assessment reviewed:
- Recent purchase of your property.
- Recent home improvement project.
- Sales of similar homes in your area.
- Fluctuating market conditions.
When we receive your assessment review request our tax appeal team will begin with the details of your property to uncover any errors in your property’s description. In addition we will review your exemptions to confirm you are receiving all you are entitled to. When the township assessor releases the new assessment numbers for the upcoming tax year, our review continues. Depending on the township the information is released sometime during the months of May through August. Our analysis of all available data and our expertise of the assessment process will help us determine if a tax appeal is warranted.
Once we complete your assessment review you will be notified of the outcome. If a tax appeal is warranted we will file your case with the Board of Review.
