Assessment Notices Mailed to Worth Township
2018 assessment notices were mailed today by the Cook County Assessor’s office to property owners in Worth Township, IL. If your home is in Worth Township you have approximately one month to appeal your assessed value at the Assessor’s office, up to the deadline of July 23rd.
Worth Township was reassessed in 2017 so a successful appeal in 2018 may result in two years of savings, until Worth is reassessed in 2020. 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 at in the triennial reassessment cycle. Others also recommend this approach.

We recommend reviewing your assessment annually, especially in a reassessment year, to ensure you do not pay more than your fair share in property taxes.
