Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin is announcing four free property tax appeal workshops for Rogers Park homeowners to help homeowners better understand how their assessment was determined and to help them file an appeal with the Cook County Assessor.
Rogers Park homeowners can appeal their assessments with the Assessor from Monday, February 24 through Friday, April 3.
“It’s important for every homeowner to appeal their property assessment annually to ensure their home is not over-assessed,” said Suffredin.
Commissioner Suffredin will host two larger presentations to explain the residential property tax assessment and appeal process in-depth and instruct homeowners how to appeal either using paper or online. No reservations are required. The first will take place at the Rogers Park Library, located at 6907 N. Clark St. in Chicago on Wednesday, March 4 at 6 p.m. The second will take place at the Devon Bank, located at 6445 N. Western Ave., in Chicago on Thursday, March 19 at 6 p.m.
Suffredin’s staff will additionally provide homeowners one-on-one assistance in Rogers Park. The first opportunity is at the Rogers Park Library, located at 6907 N. Clark St. in Chicago on Friday, March 6, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The second opportunity will take place at Northtown Library, located at 6800 N.
