If you live in Lake County than I highly recommend Lake County Appeal. Ron and his staff did a great job for me. They are professional, knowledgeable and responsive. Their customer service is excellent. Plus it is really easy and does not take a lot of time. They do all the work and you sit back and save money. Why overpay based on incorrect assessments when you can lower your taxes and save money. It’s a no brainer.read more

I researched which companies had the best track record for winning property tax appeals in Lake County. Lake County Appeal was the winner by a wide margin. So I gave them a try. Ron Kingsley and Lake County Appeal saved me over $3200 in property taxes! I previously had zero luck appealing on my own and also no luck with another attorney. Ron got the job done! Many of my neighbors enjoyed similar results. I'm so happy that I already signed up for next year's appeal.read more

I give my highest recommendation to the Lake County Appeal's Team for navigating the difficult waters, on my behalf, that are the Lake County Property tax quagmire. It is appalling that property owners in LC pay some of the highest property taxes in the country. Ron and his crew are champions for equality. Thanks Ron for all the significant savings.read more

Attorney Ron Kingsley and the Lake County Appeal team achieved a fabulous result for us. I tried to do this myself a few years ago and got no where for all the research and hours I put into it. I think their initial low fee is very fair and, with a successful appeal, the method of determining the fee is even more remarkably fair. It takes experience, know-how and talent to get great results and Lake County Appeal has it all.read more

Who is LCA

LCA Cogs

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.
