Palatine Township residents can now file an appeal to their property assessment with the Board of Review. Residents have until Tuesday, Oct. 16, to file their appeal. Reducing the assessed value of your property can help reduce your property taxes.

The Palatine Township Assessor's Office can help residents file their appeals. Typically appeals are filed using comparable properties. The Palatine Township Assessor Office has a program that will list comparable properties and their values. This data can be used to file an appeal.

Residents should also note that if they have had a recent appraisal done to their property, by a certified appraiser, that too can be used as the basis for their appeal.

Palatine Township is located at 721 S. Quentin Road, across the street from Fremd High School. The township is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Assessor's Office is also open on Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to noon. No appointment is necessary. Residents can call the Assessor's Office at (847) 358-6164 with any questions.

The Palatine Township Assessor's Office looks forward to helping residents reduce their property taxes.
