Property Tax Appeals Open 12.2-12.31
Township of Schaumburg Board of Review Residential Property Tax Appeals Open from December 2 - December 31
Appeals information and assistance available at the Township and an educational appeals seminar to be held December 23.
The Township of Schaumburg Assessor’s Office will assist Township residents in processing and filing property tax appeals with the Cook County Board of Review from December 2 - December 31, 2019. The Township will host evening hours during this appeals period until 6:30 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays except for December 24 and 31, when the Township will close at noon.
Township of Schaumburg Assessor John R. Lawson said, “Residents should consider appealing with the Board of Review regardless of the outcome of their appeal with the Cook County Assessor. The Board of Review can further reduce assessments beyond the Cook County Assessor’s evaluation, which could save taxpayers money. Our professional staff will walk you through the paperwork to make it an easy process.”
Residents can appeal regardless of 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.
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 Cook County Board of Review Commissioner Dan Patlak.
The seminar will be:
Township of Schaumburg Gymnasium
(1 Illinois Blvd, Hoffman Estates, IL 60169)
