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

Lake County Tax Appeal has done a great job reducing our real estate taxes over many past tax seasons. They do all the work, requiring very little input from the property owner. I highly recommend their services. -AH Walkerread more

They saved me $3K in taxes annually. They did it!!!!! Awesome job guys. I didn't think I would get any of my taxes reduced as Lake County assessor's office kept saying my property taxes were in line with other similar houses in my area in the past. However, I said what the heck to having Lake County Appeal try again for me. Sure enough, I got that beautiful letter stating that they won the appeal. Wow, just wow.read more

Definitely have saved me substantial money over the past several years. I sign up two properties every year. Someone has to fight these taxes - and they do. Some year's savings are better than others, but I certainly appreciate what they do!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.
