I've worked with Lake County Appeal for several years. The vast majority of those years, they have challenged my property tax assessment. On every occasion a challenge was made, they have been successful in getting a reduction. I appreciate their professionalism, easy process, and most of all, the fact they win!read more

I started working with Lake County Appeal (LCA) in 2012. Prior to that, I had Appealed on my own a number of times, but I lost more that I won, until a Realtor friend of mine recommended LCA to me. With LCA, there have been 5 appeals: 4 at the local level and 1 at the State level. They won them all and saved me thousands in tax dollars by getting me fair assessments. Thanks very much Ron and Mark and the rest of the Team.read more

If you are tired of paying over assessed taxes and you want to stay in Lake County but the assessment is forcing you to move out of state, then you should hire Lake County Appeal. They'll do all the comparable research for you for a relatively small price. If you have a case, they will submit all the paperwork for you and if the Lake County Board rejects it, they'll forward it to the State for review. You'll likely have a more favorable result from the State level. Lake County Appeal takes all the stress of filing off the homeowner. Also, the new website for filing your appeal at Lakecountyil.gov site has been updated this year, so if you don't have time to master the new system, save time and stress and hire the experts. You may just be able to stay in your home if you decide to do so.read more

Who is LCA

 

Deep Community RootsStrong RelationshipsTrained Professionals

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.
