Cook County assessor website offers more tax information
Cook County Commissioner Kevin Morrison and Cook County Assessor Fritz Kaegi have jointly announced changes to the assessor's website, www.cookcountyassessor.com, which will make it easier for taxpayers to access neighborhood-level data about comparable properties in their area. These changes will make it easier to review upcoming reassessments in the North and Northwest suburbs as well properties throughout the county.
Before, taxpayers needed to search multiple areas of the website to review how a property compared to similar properties within a neighborhood. Allowing residents quick access to their property's square footage, land assessment, and building assessment will provide important information needed to determine a property's assessed value and provide a more transparent understanding of the fairness of a particular assessment. This information is also useful for taxpayers who wish to file an appeal. Reassessment notices for the Borthern suburbs will be sent out between the end of February and end of September 2019. The South suburbs will be reassessed in 2020, and the city of Chicago will be completed in 2021.
