I have done my own appeals for several years. In some years I was successful, others not so much. Then through some acquaintances, I met an attorney that specializes in tax reduction. She was able to lower my taxes consistently. My advise, seek out an attorney that ONLY works on tax reductions ,see what the fees are and decide if that is something you might consider.

Oh! by the way, if you know of anyone looking to 'Lease, Buy, Sell or Invest', interest rates are still extremely low and there are many great deals on real estate properties!

Yes, everybody who owns real estate in Illinois is paying to much in property taxes and taxes in general. Yet for some reason we keep electing these guys. Elections have consequences. Keep that in mind when you're voting; don't fall into the class warfare trap.

I say YES! There is a tax assessment seminar where you can protest your taxes on 2/13/12 at Schaumburg High School. I'm afraid that everyone is in the same boat!

Hi Linda,
Real estate taxes can vary from property to property depending on a multitude of factors. Your Realtor should be able to show you the real estate taxes paid by area homeowners on similar properties as yours.

Hope this helps!

It is a good idea to go to the Schaumburg Township tax assessor and ask them to assist you in filing an appeal to lower your assessment. It is free and quick. They are very nice and helpful. I just got my own lowered again this way.
the Phone is 847-884-0030.
