Cook County Residential Property Tax Appeals Period Open Now Through August 25
Residents can appeal their Cook County property taxes at the Township of Schaumburg now - August 25. The Township is open during the appeals period to assist residents Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Evening hours begin Aug. 2. The Township has developed two appointment options for residents to complete appeals virtually or in-person. They are:
• Email Victor Morales at email@example.com your home pin number, phone number, email and home address. If the home was purchased after January 1, 2019, please email the sales price as well. This is the fastest and most convenient way - no visit to the office is required. Emails must be received at least one hour before closing on the last day of appeals.
• Walk-in appointments are also available but emailing your appeal information is strongly encouraged. We are open for appointments MWF 8:30-5pm and T&TH 8:30-6:30pm. You'll need to bring your pin number, phone number, email and home address. A sales price of the home will be required if the home was purchased after Jan. 1, 2019.
The Township can assist with residential property tax appeals for townhomes and single-family homes, but cannot process condo, apartment or commercial property appeals. Condo and apartment residents should work with their respective association representative.
"This year is a triennial reassessment year, which means every property will be reassessed," said Township of Schaumburg Assessor John R. Lawson. "As many residents take a close look at their reassessment, the Township staff will be available to provide simple, convenient and accurate appeals assistance."
Due to COVID-19, emailing appeal information is strongly encouraged, though walk- in appointments are available. Any questions can be directed to the Township of Schaumburg Assessor's Office at 847-285-4567. Additional information can be found at: schaumburgtownship.org/departments/assessors-office.
