The team at Lake County Appeal has been great. While we did not win our appeal with Lake County, Ron Kingsley appealed to the State Board and won, not one but two years for us. He also appealed our most recent appraisal based on the revised home value from the State Board. All around, they are thorough, dogged and respond promptly when I have a question. If you think your home is appraised too high in Lake County, give Lake County Appeal a call. You will not be disappointed.read more

I have used Lake County Appeal for a number of years now and have had success multiple times in lowering my taxes after home prices fell but my assessment did not. For a nominal amount, they handle all the process of the appeal. My savings have been significant, so paying them a portion of the first year's savings as a success fee seems a reasonable approach, especially as I continue to benefit from the lower base annually after that. Plus, their fees are lower than those of some other firms that have sent me solicitations. Ron Kingsley and his staff have been extremely responsive when I have called, and when I needed to do a rollover appeal on my own, they patiently walked me through what I needed to do. That appeal was also successful thanks to their assistance. While it is good to appeal every year, it is especially important to appeal in the years when the quadrennial base assessment is established, since taxes are raised by a standard percentage during the following three years. I have been very pleased with their service and plan to continue to use them annually.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.
