Save Thousands on an Appeal

Appealing your home’s assessed value is the only way to reduce your second installment property tax bill in July 2020, if you’ve claimed all of your Cook County exemptions. Assessments can and should be appealed every year, regardless of when your township was reassessed.

To ensure fairness, the Cook County Assessor’s office encourages all homeowners to appeal. They have publicly acknowledged that their initial assessments may not accurately reflect your home’s fair value.

It’s All about the Comps: DIY vs. Using a Service

Homeowners can appeal directly with the Cook County Assessor via their website. However, unless you have thoroughly researched comparable properties or “comps” (the most similar homes to yours) you may forego a reduction of thousands of dollars.

A more comprehensive review of comps by an experienced third-party—especially one that purchases all home assessment data from Cook County, 3 times per year—will reveal a more persuasive analysis.

Kensington Research & Recovery, a Cook County property tax consulting company, offers a free assessment of how much your property taxes may be reduced based on up to five comps for your home. There is no obligation to use Kensington to appeal your property taxes following the estimate.

About Kensington Research & Recovery

Kensington helps homeowners, businesses and organizations in two ways. The first is appealing property tax assessments to reduce future property tax payments. The second is recovering government refunds due to overcharges and over-payments. For both, government agencies impose strict deadlines and require fully researched claims, which are complex and time-consuming. While there’s no guarantee of success, Kensington does guarantee that its extensively trained staff will make its best efforts on behalf of its clients – and Kensington clients only pay a portion of what is saved or refunded. Kensington has a 90% success rate based on thousands of property tax appeals made primarily in Cook County.
