Schaumburg Township Assessor John Lawson announced Tuesday that the Cook County assessor will accept property assessment appeals through Sept. 19.
Appeals may be done at the Schaumburg Township Assessor's office during normal business hours from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or online at cookcountyassessor.com.
Lawson encourages all taxpayers to appeal if they think their property assessment is too high. If your appeal is successful, it will reduce your assessed value and may lower your total property tax bill.
Such a reduction would take effect on the second installment of the taxpayer's 2014 tax bill, payable in the fall of 2015.
