The 2015 Cook County assessment season has begun. This year all property located in the City of Chicago will be re-assessed. There are eight townships in the City of Chicago (Rogers Park, Lake View, Hyde Park, Lake, West, Jefferson, North Chicago, and South Chicago). Property owners in each of these townships will receive a re-assessment notice in the mail setting forth the proposed 2015 assessment. Taxpayers will have thirty days to file an appeal with the Assessor’s office to seek a reduction in the proposed assessment.
Property owners in each of the other 30 townships in Cook County will also have an opportunity to contest their 2015 assessments during the 30-day filing period for their township regardless whether their assessment has increased or not.
The Assessor’s tentative mailing schedule for each of the 38 townships in Cook County can be found on the Assessor’s web site via the link below.
