Orland Township is now open to accept 2012 Board of Review Assessment Appeals. Any resident who feels their property is overvalued may file an appeal. Our appeal filing period begins Monday, November 19, 2012 and ends Tuesday, December 18, 2012.
If you need assistance in preparing your appeal, please call the Orland Township Assessor’s Office at 708-403-4222 to schedule an appointment. Please call at your earliest convenience as our appointment schedules fill up quickly. The township has a limited supply of appeal forms as do the Board of Review Offices in the Markham or Bridgeview Courthouses. Appeal forms and complete instructions can also be downloaded directly from the Board of Review website: www.cookcountyboardofreview.com. The filing deadline for any paper appeal forms is 5:00 P.M. on December 18, 2012, and the filing deadline for on-line appeals is 11:30 P.M. on December 18, 2012. The last day the Orland Township Assessor’s Office will accept 2012 appeals is Friday, December 14th to ensure delivery to the Board of Review Office by the filing deadline.
The Orland Township Assessor’s Office will continue to assist residents in preparing 2012 appeals through December 18th, but residents will need to either take the appeal directly to the Post Office for the appeal to be postmarked by the December 18th appeal filing deadline or the appeal can be dropped off at the Board of Review Office in the Markham or Bridgeview Courthouse.
