Palatine Township residents can now file an appeal to the assessed valuation of their homes with the Cook County Assessor. The appeal period is open only until June 18. This appeal period is for 2012 with any reduction showing on the second half tax bill mailed out in the fall of 2013.
A reduction in the assessed value of your property can help reduce your property taxes. Appeals can be filed online or residents can stop by the Palatine Township Assessor’s Office for assistance. To file online, a resident should note several “comparable” properties. Comparable properties are similar homes that have a lower assessed value. The Palatine Township Assessor’s Office can help residents find comparable properties.
The Palatine Township Assessor’s Office can be reached at 847-358-6164.
