Strip Searches Taxing to Property Owners - By Mike Glasser

Strip Searches Taxing to Property Owners - By Mike Glasser The hot topic at last Tuesday night’s Rogers Park Builder’s Group Director’s meeting was property taxes. Over the past few days, members have been receiving our long awaited, but dreaded, 2nd installment 2009 tax bills from the Cook County Treasurer. (2009 bills are due in 2010.) For landlords, property taxes are usually our second largest expense item behind our mortgages, and, unfortunately, taxes are the least predictable - especially every third year when reassessments occur. A substantial increase in taxes often makes the difference between a building generating a positive cash flowing or running a negative balance. True enough, due to tax increases, this year many of us will face negative cash flows and further drop in property values for our properties. One can understand the feeling of outrage. Follow along right here.
