The Assessment Appeal

Your Guide To Property Tax Justice®

We handle everything for you from beginning to end.

The Assessment Appeal Process

The first step in the process is to sign up for an assessment review. 

After you have signed up, we will email you a copy of the online contract back to you. This is our acknowledgment that we are in receipt of your information.

If we determine that there your property’s assessment is erroneously high and that you are therefore paying too much in property taxes, we will file an appeal. We will prepare your case and present it to the local board of review.

Lake County Appeal will notify you by email that we have filed an appeal on your behalf.

In the event that the County Board of Review denies our appeal, or if it doesn’t reduce your property’s assessed value as much as we believe it should have, we will file another appeal with the Illinois Property Tax Appeal Board at no additional charge to you. 

In late winter, the local board of review will advise Lake County Appeal of the appeal results, which we will send to you.  In the event that the board denies our appeal, or if it doesn’t reduce your property’s assessed value as much as we believe it should have, we will file a subsequent appeal with the Illinois Property Tax Appeal Board (“PTAB”) at no additional charge to you.

 

Your township assessor will, publish your new property tax assessment between April and September. Until we have all of the necessary information from your township and county, we cannot finish our research. As soon as the information is available, Lake County Appeal will proceed with your assessment review.
