Know When to File a 2016 Appeal with the Cook County Assessor's Office
Every three (3) years the Cook County Assessor Joseph Berrios issues a reassessment notice. His staff uses a computer-assisted mass appraisal method to value all residential properties. The appraisal method reviews all the sales within a neighborhood and estimates a market value by assigning values to individual building characteristics of sold properties. The Maine Township reassessment notice mailed to all residents on May 26, 2016. Appeals maybe filed for 33 days after the release of the assessment notice. During the appeal period, my office will assist residents in filing a complaint through June 27, 2016. However, if any supporting documents are required to be filed with the Cook County Assessor, all documents need to be to the Maine Township Assessor’s office on or before June 21, 2016.
