2020 Assessed Valuation Appeal Update
Riverside Township began the 2020 appeal cycle on February 11th and the last day to file an appeal with the Cook County Assessor was on May 1, 2020. This turned out to be an unusually long appeal period due to the COVID 19 situation. Cook County offices were vacated and almost everyone was working from home. It is our understanding that appeals are still being processed. Hopefully we will see those decision letters within the next few weeks.
The next step in the appeal process takes place with the Cook County Board of Review. The Board cannot proceed until the Assessor’s Office decides on the current appeals and then certifies the data. Please keep in mind the 2020 Assessed Value will be used to calculate the amount of property taxes you will pay in 2021.
