Homeowner Exemption

This exemption entitles residents of Cook County who own their home as of January 1st of the year in which you are applying and use this as your principal place of residence, a reduction in their equalized assessed valuation of $6,000.  This exemption will reduce the total tax bill by $400 to $500 each year.

If you lease a home and are responsible for the payment of property taxes, you would also be entitled to receive this deduction.
 

Property Value Analysis – Property Tax Appeals

All townships within Cook County have two opportunities each year to protest or appeal the assessed valuation on their property.  The first opportunity to file an appeal would be through the Cook County Assessor’s Office.  The Cook County Assessor’s Office establishes a yearly calendar to assign specific dates in which each township is open to file appeals.   At the beginning of each tax year the Assessor’s Office displays a tentative filing date for each township.  As the year progresses, they will update the website to reflect the actual appeal filing period. A taxpayer can only file an appeal when the township filing period has been established.

Additional Services

The Township Assessor’s Office also provides assessment information, property ownership, sales data, building permit information, and permanent index number inquiries to realtors, banks, appraisers, and residents.   We provide residents or potential new property owners with tax estimates for current year taxes, and perform inspections of properties throughout the township to determine a correct address or condition of the property.
