Significant tax increases in Cook County
Many Cook County residents are on high alert over their property taxes because many friends and neighbors talk about their own significant tax increases. The Treasurer’s Office has a procedure for calculating your property tax liability, but you obviously know your property and its surrounding conditions better than others may. If you hear your area is experiencing increases in real estate taxes due to new growth and redevelopment you should consider an appeal.
