Practice Area The firm is concentrated in the area of real estate tax appeals, representing commercial and residential real estate taxpayers in Cook County, Illinois. Our purpose is to reduce clients real estate tax liability in an effort to reduce the cost of doing business and/or the cost of living. All property located within Cook County is reassessed on a triennial reassessment cycle. Whether your property has been reassessed in the current year or a previous year, it is important to ensure that the assessed value of your property accurately reflects its market value. The assessed value, as determined by the Cook County Assessor, is a major factor in calculating your final real estate tax bill and it is appealable. Actively appealing the assessed value of your property helps to ensure that the Assessor's estimated market value is not artificially high and that your real estate tax liability is fair, accurate and reasonable. For more information about the tax assessment and appeal process please visit our "FAQ's" link above.
Fees Fees are charged purely on a contingent fee basis. Upon retaining the firm there will be no retainer fee. A fee will be calculated only in the event that an assessment reduction or a tax refund is obtained. Any fee will represent a percentage of the total tax saving and/or refund obtained.
