How to Determine If You’re Getting the Maximum Property Tax Reduction
You could be leaving hundreds or even thousands of dollars on the table if you live in Cook County and appeal your own property taxes or use a non-specialized law firm or internet service to do so.
How do you know if you’re getting as much of a reduction as possible?
Our Free Estimate determines how much of a property tax appeal reduction we believe we could help you with and our success rate is over 90%. This blog explains why you should consider taking us up on this offer.
Why Are You Leaving Money on the Table?
If you appeal on your own, you’re leaving it up to the same people trying to charge you an unfair amount to see the error of their ways and to give you a reduction. This would not serve their best interests, so do-it-yourself appeals often result in a small fraction of what could be obtained by using a third-party with a data-driven, comps approach. You can read more about the perils of DIY property tax appeals in Cook County here.
If you are using a family lawyer, a non-specialized law firm, or a startup internet service, you run the risk of leaving thousands on the table if they do not use the right comps.
A Data-Driven Approach to Property Tax Appeals
Our approach begins with our having the most current assessed value for every home in Cook County, which we purchase directly from Cook County. We then run our proprietary algorithm over this data to identify the best comps for your home.
Before we appeal, we provide a Free Estimate of what we believe your reduction will be, which has been highly accurate for us over the last 10,000 appeals. We can also evaluate whether you’re taking advantage of all applicable exemptions.
It’s Not Too Late for 2017: Board of Review
By now, the vast majority of windows to appeal your property taxes in townships throughout Cook County have closed. However, it’s possible for you to appeal at the Board of Review and still get a maximum property tax appeal reduction.
