The process I experienced with Lake County Appeal was well organized and efficient. They were able to successful win my property tax appeal, which was something I attempted to do myself and failed at in the past. It was easy to sign up for their service offering, they kept me informed on as add need basis throughout, and provided a very satisfactory result.read more

Mr. Kingsley at Lake County Appeal has been extremely helpful and responsive to my request. He explained the process of appealing my property taxes, walked me through it, took care of almost everything for me, and then produced results! The whole process took only a few months and it resulted just as he predicted. Very pleased with his services. I would highly recommend.read more

I have used Ron Kingsley and Lake County Appeal several times since my brother recommended him to me years ago and he always saves me money! Most recently, Ron lowered my property tax bill by $1600. Ron's team does excellent work performing a much needed service in the state of Illinois. I have recommended Lake County appeal to two of my neighbors and they are most grateful. Thank you Lake County Appeal!read more

We have used Ron for the last few years to appeal our real estate taxes. He has done a wonderful job for us. For 2018, he received a substantial reduction for us but still wasn't satisfied and continued the appeal with The Illinois Property Tax Board and as a result, we received an even greater reduction in our taxes. For 2019, no reduction was received from his initial appeal with the county, but again he continued the appeal to the Illinois Property Tax Board and hopefully, we will see the same result as 2018. We love his persistence and will continue to use him each year. He is very responsive and does an excellent job of keeping us informed on the status of our appeals. We highly recommend him!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.
