Board of Review Opens Group 1 for 2022 Appeals

The Cook County Board of Review has opened 2022 property tax appeals for the first group. The Board’s deadline to appeal your 2022 assessed value is December 20, 2022. Below are the townships that are currently open in Group 1:

  • Berwyn
  • Calumet
  • Cicero
  • Oak Park
  • Riverside

Assessments can be appealed every year, regardless of when a township was reassessed. If you missed your appeal opportunity at the Assessor’s office earlier in the year, or if you did appeal and weren’t satisfied with the result, you have a second opportunity to appeal at the Board of Review. Appealing your home’s 2022 assessed value is the only way to achieve property tax relief on your second installment property tax bill in the fall of 2023, other than selling your home or claiming a new exemption.

Contact us before the December 20 deadline for a free, no-obligation, and professional analysis of your home’s assessment level compared to similar properties in your neighborhood. We’ll tell you if we don’t think you have a strong case for an appeal. If we feel there is a solid factual-based argument to be made, then you can choose if you would like to hire us to assist you with the appeal. There is no risk in using our service because you pay nothing unless your appeal is successful.
