Schaumburg Township Assessor John Lawson is encouraging homeowners who've recently received their Cook County tax bills to check for possible errors.
Among those found on the bills of residents who've come in to Lawson's office in the past week are the absence of homeowner exemptions, senior exemptions and senior freezes where they ought to be. Schaumburg Township residents are urged to visit the assessor's office at 1 Illinois Blvd. in Hoffman Estates, but keep in mind that there could be long lines.
The deadline to pay the second installment tax bill is Aug. 1. To check for open appeal dates, visit cookcountyassessor.com.
