THE WORST PROPERTY TAX INCREASES WE HAVE SEEN IN 20 YEARS, NO BS. Many homeowners, especially Chicago homeowners will STILL be very upset with the arrival of the 2022 first installment which is due April 3rd 2023 because it has one simple calculation, 55% of the year prior. The year prior was 2021 and the Cook County Assessor's triennial reassessment year. That means they got to slap ALL CHICAGO HOMES with a new property tax value in 2021, most of them were insane increases! The triennial reassessments were the worst we've seen in over 20 years! Many 2 flats and 3 flats received 60-128% increases! Even if we reduced a 128% increase by 60% the end result would still be a 68% hike. IT DOES NOT MEAN WE DID NOT DO OUR JOB. WE ALWAYS INFORM AND REMIND CUSTOMERS THOSE ENROLLING IN A REASSESSMENT YEAR THE JOB IS NOT TO LOWER DOLLARS, IT IS TO SOFTEN THE INCREASE and YOU CAN BET OUR COMPETITION IS NOT QUITE AS FORTHCOMING. The other two years of the cycle you can work on going TAX DOLLARS DOWNWARD as long as you fight those years too and we help you do just that as long as you keep service time on your account. These increases will likely require you FIGHT each and every year of the three year cycle, which is exactly what we help you do! TIP: Lawyers are dumping tons of solicitations in your mailbox hoping to rope you in to 33 to 50% to help you fight your insane increases. They companies charging a percentage (99% of them) LOVE to help you the first year, they often forget you the 2nd and 3rd of the cycle when they can't make enough on their percentage for it to be worth while. TIP: No matter where you live in Cook County the Assessor gets to hike your property tax value every 3 years, even sooner if you do improvements or construction! The tax bills hit a year after triennial reassessments, why? You have one year to "start saving" because they warned you. Many do not see the warning letters showing increases and appeal windows, because they go the mortgage company. Most find out when the mortgage skyrockets again! The other choice is to get a FREE EVALUATION (bottom of homepage) or start FIGHTING! Keep reading there is a $50 Promo Code below to get MORE TIME on your account or for a Cook County friend. Many Chicago owners felt the reassessment hit on the 2021 second installment which should have been out in July of 2022 but was late, hitting in November 2022. We have cautioned owners that this would also cause a burden in spring (this tax bill) when the first installment comes out normally because tax bills are usually six months apart but this time there was only a few months in between.
