47th Ward Offers Property Tax Assistance

By Stacy Jeziorowski | Tuesday, February 1, 2011

UPDATE: (11:56 a.m.) The February 1 session at Coonley Elementary has been canceled due to weather.

Are you a concerned resident who thinks your property tax bill is too high? Want a chance to fix it? If you live in Lakeview Township, as indicated on your tax bill, this is your chance.

The Cook County Board of Review is now accepting assessed valuation complaint forms for areas in the 47th Ward east of Western Avenue.

Ald. Schulter, in partnership with Board of Review Commissioner Larry Rogers, Jr. and Cook County Commissioner John Fritchey, is sponsoring two workshops to assist residents in completing their forms. Forms are available for download here.

The first clinic is Tuesday, Feb. 1 at Coonley Elementary School at 4046 N. Leavitt and the second on Tuesday, Feb. 8 at Ravenswood School located at 4332 N. Paulina. Both clinics start at 6:30p.m.

Personal finance experts recommend examining your bill closely to find errors and to see if you agree with what the assessor has valued your home at.  “You have nothing to lose” by appealing you property taxes.

Ward residents unavailable to attend these clinics can stop in at Ald. Schulter’s 47th Ward Public Service Office at 4237 N. Lincoln for assistance.  The Cook County Board of Review is accepting appeals through February 10 and forms will be accepted at the 47th Ward Public Service Office until February 9.
