Cook County Board of Review Accepting Real Esate Tax Valuation Appeals from Northfield Township Property Owners
Northfield Township Assessor Patricia Damisch announced that the Cook County Board of Review will be accepting appeals from Northfield Township property owners beginning Monday, December 19th for a four-week period.
In late July all property owners received new valuations for their properties from the Cook County Assessor. These valuations will stay in place for a three-year period and were based on sales activities in the prior three years. The average assessment increase in Northfield Township was 24%.
Assessing professionals at the Township are available to meet one-on-one with residents to review their properties’ unique situations. An in-house computer system is utilized to find comparable properties to determine whether the owner has a valid case to file an appeal. Staff can then give guidance on how to proceed in the most effective manner.
For further information call (847) 724-8300 to speak to a member of the Northfield Township Assessor’s Department.
Property Tax Information Website
Cook County has a one stop property tax information website enabling residents to access more information than ever in one location. This property tax portal accessed at www.cookcountypropertyinfo.com combines information from various county offices into one unified site, allowing residents access to a streamlined process to handle all their property tax issues. Taxpayers will no longer need to visit up to six county offices to piece together the record on their properties-that information is now all found on the Property Tax Portal.
Residents are able to access information on assessment appeals to the Board of Review; ownership and liens from the Recorder of Deeds; payments and refunds from the Treasurer; valuation, exemptions and appeals from the Assessor; prior bill statuses, delinquencies and Tax Increment Financing Districts (TIF) information from the Clerk and a plethora of other helpful information.
The site also includes a link that explains how property taxes work with an easy to understand flow chart. Another feature is that taxpayers may conduct a search by Taxing District name to view debt disclosures and /or download any financial statement uploaded by a particular agency.
