Homeowners in Niles Township are being encouraged to appeal their property tax assessment to the Cook County Board of Review for the 2012 tax year, said Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin in a press release on Monday.
“The Cook County Board of Review’s Office opened on Jan. 7, 2013 for Niles Township homeowners to appeal their property tax assessment for 2012," Suffredin said in a press release. "Niles [Township] homeowners can potentially reduce their assessment, which could reduce their tax liabilities for taxes payable in August of 2013. I strongly encourage homeowners to appeal, as it is the best way for ensuring that your property taxes remain as low as possible.”
Those looking to file an appeal in person may do so at the Skokie Office of the Cook County Board of Review, located in room 155 of the Skokie Courthouse, 5600 Old Orchard Rd. You can also file an appeal online by clicking here.
