|Doing my civic duty and appealing my property taxes along with other Lincoln Square and North Center neighbors at the 47th Ward office.|
Last week I stopped by the 47th Ward service office to take advantage of a property tax education program sponsored by Bridget Gainer's 10th District Cook County Commissioner's office. Appealing your taxes can be done easily at home online but I took the opportunity to ask some questions of the commissioner's aides on hand.
**Check your property tax bill for your township (upper right hand corner of your bill) and note your window for appeals at the Cook County Assessor's web site. You can appeal twice a year. Once with the Cook County Assessors Office and once with the Cook County Board of Review**
I was given a nice Citizens Guide to Property Tax Bills handout provided by Bridget Gainer's office. Please contact them at 312-603-4210 or firstname.lastname@example.org
