Residential Property Appeals Open from 8.16- 9.16
Township of Schaumburg residents who believe their property has been over-assessed will have thirty days to file appeals. The appeal period is from August 16, - September 16, 2019. The Township Assessor’s Office can assist residential property owners regarding the appeals process and filing. During the appeals period, the Township will extend normal hours and be open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8:30-5:00 pm and Tuesday and Thursday from 8:30 – 6:30 pm. Appeals should be filed with the Cook County Assessor’s Office.
Residents can also get an overview on how to file an appeal and one-on-one assistance at an upcoming appeals seminar sponsored by Township of Schaumburg Assessor, John R. Lawson, along with State Senator Laura Murphy, State Representative Michelle Mussman, Cook County Commissioner Kevin B. Morrison, Cook County Recorder of Deeds Edward M. Moody and the Township Mayors (Craig Johnson of Elk Grove Village, William McLeod of Hoffman Estates, Rodney Craig of Hanover Park, Joe Gallo of Rolling Meadows, Andrew Maglio of Roselle, Tom Dailly of Schaumburg, Billie Roth of Streamwood) in conjunction with the Cook County Assessor’s Office.
The two seminars will be:
Schaumburg High School Gymnasium
(Door 10 - 1100 W. Schaumburg Road Schaumburg, IL 60194)
Township of Schaumburg Gymnasium
(1 Illinois Blvd, Hoffman Estates, IL 60169)
Residents can appeal regardless of any recent appeals with the Cook County Assessor’s Office and/or the Cook County Board of Review. Over-assessment appeals can be made for the following reasons:
- If your property’s improvement value is assessed higher, per square foot, than other properties in your neighborhood of similar size, style, and construction.
- If the stated market value for your property is higher than the property's actual market value. An appraisal report or recent sales contract is needed.
- If the property description is incorrect. A minor error does not necessarily indicate an incorrect assessment.
Questions can be directed to the Township of Schaumburg Assessor’s Office at (847) 884-0030 between 8:30 am – 5:00 pm, Monday – Friday.
