One of the factors that determines the amount of property taxes you pay, is the assessed value of your property. The value is determined by the Cook County Assessor, but if you feel your assessment is inaccurate, you can appeal it. If you live in Rogers Park, any appeals are due to the Cook County Assessor by March 1. 

There will be a workshop to learn how to appeal your property tax assessment on Wednesday February 22, at the Loyola Park Fieldhouse, 1230 W. Greenleaf. The workshop will teach you how the assessment process works, how to file an appeal with the County Assessor's office and how an appeal is granted. If you are interested, please bring your property tax bill to more efficiently file an appeal. 

If you are unable to attend the workshop, the Cook County Assessor's website has an overview of the appeal process.
