The Cook County Assessor’s Office has mailed letters containing decisions on 2020 Assessed Valuation Appeals. Taxpayers who filed Assessed Valuation Appeals between February 10th and May 1st, 2020 with the Cook County Assessor should have received a letter. Even if an appeal was filed online, you will receive an actual letter. Read your decision letters carefully, the changes in assessed values are detailed at the very bottom of your letter.
Cook County Assessor, Fritz Kaegi decided properties in Cook County should be adjusted for COVID-19 and those adjustments were applied to properties in Riverside Township. Some taxpayers whose appeals did not receive a reduction in assessed value may still see a reduction in their assessed values due to COVID-19. These adjustments can be seen on the Cook County Assessor’s Office website.
Unhappy With Your Appeal Result or Miss the Deadline?
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the Assessor’s Office cannot hold a re-review session. The Cook County Board of Review will stay on schedule for the second round of Cook County Appeals. The Board usually takes appeals from Riverside Township in August. You will receive another email from us as it gets closer to August with steps you can take to file your appeal with the Cook County Board of Review.
