Best Financial Group assists property owners in Cook County seeking residential property tax relief. We help owners reduce their assessed value to save on future bills, and in some cases to obtain refunds on exemptions.
Why should you consider a Cook County Property Tax Appeal?
We have a 93% success rate. The Cook County Property tax appeal process will lower the assessed value of your home so your property taxes remain low. The assessed value does not affect the market value of your home. In fact, keeping your taxes low may result in a higher market value.
How do we go about the Cook County Property Tax Appeal process?
Our team will appeal your property’s assessed value based on Lack of Uniformity or Overvaluation. Our computer program scans a mile radius of the homes near yours to choice similar properties that prove that your assessment should be lowered. The Cook County computer system does not take into account local conditions. Therefore, it overvalues your home’s assessment and consequently its property tax.
Using this information, we make the tax appeals with the Cook County Assessor, Cook County Board of Review or at the Property Tax Appeal Board in Illinois. We check if you are missing exemptions. You may be eligible for refunds as far as three years back.
When do you file an Appeal?
It is possible to file Cook County Property Tax year round. We will inform you when the assessment has concluded. It is advantageous to place your property through more than one assessment to receive the biggest reduction in tax. It is more advantageous to repeat the assessment process each year for maximum benefit.
How much does it cost?
We offer quality customer service, persistence, and a competitive price. We charge a flat, upfront fee rather than a percentage as our competitors. Our clients benefit from a fixed, lower overall cost which applies to a one, three, or five year period.
