Lake County Appeal reviewed and then contested our 2019 property taxes for our home in Barrington. They kept us informed on the appeal and did win a reduction. However, LCA felt that the assessed value was still too high and proactively appealed the ruling. This eventually saved us an additional $2500 over the original reduction. Keep in mind, this is an annual savings! My suggestion is to annually contest your taxes and to use LCA!read more

I have used LCA for several years. I use to appeal my taxes myself but felt it a better use of my time to let the professionals do it. Most recently they secured a $2,300 tax savings on my property. Lake County Assessors denied LCA's initial request so they took it down state and WON! Excellent job! I would highly recommend Lake County Appeal.read more

LCA was efficient and effective in securing a lower tax assessment. Not only did they challenge the assessment at the Lake County level, they also went to the state Property Tax Assessment Board to secure a lower tax assessment. Was well worth the minimal fee up front to get more personalized service.read more

How can LCA help lower your property taxes with a property tax appeal?

Your taxes are determined by three factors: tax rate, state multiplier and property tax assessment. Our goal is to lower your property tax assessment in order to bring down your property tax.

Who should apply for an assessment review for appealing their property tax?

Anyone who owns property should make sure that their property is properly assessed. Otherwise, they may be paying too much property tax. 

How does the property tax appeal process work?

Once you're signed up with LCA, if we find that your property is unfairly assessed, we will file the appeal automatically. We will handle everything for you, from beginning to end. You can just sit back and relax while we keep you up-to-date on the whole process.

How  much does LCA charge?

For residential property, the initial review fee is $65.00  If we find that your property is unfairly assessed, we will file an appeal, free of charge. If the property tax appeal is successful, we charge 37.5% of the tax saving for the year of the appeal.

How do you determine my savings?

We determine your tax savings by taking your original assessment and subtracting your lowered assessment, after our successful property tax appeal, and then multiplying the difference by the tax rate set forth on your property tax bill. 

At Lake County Appeal, we possess the knowledge capital to win even the most challenging property tax appeals. Our tax appeal firm is comprised of local and experienced real estate analysts, brokers and legal advisors, all of whom utilize a plethora of resources, including a proprietary database.

Our property tax appeal team knows Lake County and Chicago as a whole. We have deep-rooted experience that spans across neighborhoods, schools and townships. Our strong relationships with county representatives and years working alongside the most stringent decision makers positions us ahead of the curve.

We will not file a property tax appeal solely based on a computerized algorithm. Rather, we will do so only with the oversight and knowledge of a trained real estate professional and tax attorney.
