The Cook County Assessor is now open for property tax appeals from Riverside Township residents. The deadline to appeal with Cook County is Friday, July 22nd by 11:59 pm. This is the last year of the triennial; if you have received positive appeal results in the past two years, then it may not be necessary to file an appeal this year. In 2023, Riverside Township will be reassessed, starting a new triennial appeal cycle.
Cook County Assessor’s Office now requires all appeals to be filed online. Property owners who have a computer and internet access are able to file an appeal from the comfort of their homes by visiting the online portal, here: https://www.cookcountyassessor.com/online-appeals
