Appealing Your 2016 Reassessment Notice
The Cook County Assessor closed for appeals on June 27, 2016. The second opportunity to file an appeal will be to the Board of Review. Currently, the Maine Township Assessor's office does not have an official date when the Board of Review (BOR) will open. The best way to guarantee that you don't miss the date to appeal at the BOR is to pre-register. This will allow taxpayers to be notified by BOR of the opening and closing periods.

The pre-file period for the BOR is now open for Maine Township residents. The pre-file period allows all filers to submit their appeal before the township officially opens. At this time residents can submit all supporting documents including comparable properties. Once the filer has completed the appeal they will receive an email confirmation with a complaint number. Filers will not be able to file supplementary evidence online. It can be taken to a BOR location or mailed directly with a copy of the confirmation statement. The BOR website is www.cookcountyboardofreview.com.
                                                                                                                                             
The main role of the Assessor's office is to serve our residents. The Assessor's office is open from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM Monday-Friday. This office is your liaison to the Cook County Assessor's office. The Cook County Assessor is responsible for estimating the value of your property, which determines your assessed valuation. This assessed valuation does determine the overall share of taxes you will pay.
