Lyons Township 2023 Triennial Reassessments Mailed

2023 Triennial reassessment notices were mailed to Lyons Township homeowners on Tuesday, October 24, 2023. Homeowners in Lyons Township have 31 days to appeal their assessment at the Assessor’s office (there will be a second opportunity to appeal later in the year at the Board of Review, whether you appeal at the Assessor’s office or not). The deadline for appealing at the Assessor’s office is November 27, 2023.

We recommend homeowners review their assessment annually, particularly in a triennial reassessment year, to ensure they do not pay more than their fair share in property taxes. Successfully appealing in a reassessment year may provide 3 years of savings on future property tax bills. If you would like a free analysis of your Lyons Township home compared to similar properties, we would be happy to conduct a “no obligation” analysis and provide you with a free estimate of how much we believe we could help you save with an appeal.

Northfield Township 2023 Assessment Notices Mailed

2023 property assessment notices were mailed by the Cook County Assessor’s office on Wednesday, October 25, 2023, to Northfield Township property owners. The window to appeal your 2023 assessed value is now open until the deadline of November 28, 2023. The following cities, towns, and villages are in Northfield Township:

  • Glencoe
  • Glenview
  • Northbrook (majority)
  • Northfield (west 3/4)
  • Prospect Heights (east edge)
  • Wilmette (west edge)
  • Des Plaines (north edge)

We recommend property owners review their assessments annually and appeal whenever there is a strong evidence-based argument that your home may not be assessed fairly. Northfield Township was reassessed in 2022 but even if you appealed last year, you can appeal your assessment again this year. A successful appeal in 2023 may result in two years of savings until Northfield is reassessed in 2025. The best way to ensure you never pay more than your fair share in property taxes is to review your assessment every year and appeal whenever you have a strong basis for an appeal argument, no matter where your township is in the triennial reassessment cycle.
