Our customers fight EACH AND EVERY YEAR, at two different agencies, about 6 months apart. There is a HOW IT WORKS video on our homepage, please watch it if this is your first visit. Here's the short version: Once you ENROLL BELOW you will get a INSTANT RECEIPT. During business hours, soon after you get an ACTION REQUIRED email with an EVIDENCE FILE ATTACHED that YOU UPLOAD to the county IF YOUR APPEAL WINDOW IS OPEN. If not, we send that email when the NEXT appeal window opens for your area (they open every 4-6 months). When we are VERY BUSY (near deadlines) you will get them LATER in the day, sometimes in the EVENING. Enroll with confidence! We are 5 Stars EVERYWHERE and we have an A+ Rating with the Better Business Bureau! Good luck in your battle for fair taxes! "Property Taxes Suck. We Make Them Suck Less" - After you enroll call your mother, tell her you love her. Angelo C. ~ Owner
"Quality Evidence" is crucial to a successful Cook County property tax appeal. Most appeals are filed on a Lack of Uniformity basis, using homes like theirs paying less. We use a quarter million dollar Research Database that gathers such evidence in milliseconds or it tells us your taxes are fair. When that happens you can skip and appeal window but the database will continue to check your property every time an appeal window opens as long as you keep service time on your account, it's a pretty cool tool. We spend $15,000 to $20,000 a year maintaining that tool and being very honest it's speed and automation is what allowed us to switch to our low flat fee 10 years ago. We provide the best possible evidence that is proven to win again and again over time. Sometimes we may determine other supporting documentation could help as proof of over taxation. For example, in some cases we may inform you that Closing Statements, Appraisals or Vacancy Affidavits may help you warrant even greater reductions in your property taxes. With thousands of clients rest assured we know the best angles. We know what works and what doesn't. We send this via email when its time to file. When is it time? Great question, keep reading.
This is the 2nd greatest value in our service. There are only a couple 30 day windows each year to GET IN or you're OUT. Once you're in, you have the right to Re-Review, a 2nd chance upon arrival of the initial decision. The county changes the appeal dates year over year so you cannot prepare for battle on the same day every year. From the moment you enroll, we are your Property Tax Watch Dog. You go on with your happy life and we'll watch the dates for you. TIP: Consider adding our new ROBO DEADLINE REMINDER CALLS a very wise $24 investment. It saves many of our client's asses at least about once a year. It also calls 2 numbers so spouses can't blame each other when the appeal gets missed.
Through a short Q&A session we will determine if you are entitled to refunds on taxes already paid. If you are entitled to any refunds, we send you links to the forms required by the county. Farlap & Associates does NOT charge customers for refunds on residential properties up to six unit apartment buildings. If you receive a check and your happy, your more than welcome to send an Amazon gift card.
Once we ALERT you that your appeal window is OPEN, we will then make sure that you're ARMED with our Professionally gathered evidence! It comes to you via an email which says "Action Required Appeal Package" simply follow the step-by-step screen shots to get your appeal filed on line in minutes! We recently heard that a 7 year old helped his parents. If a 7 year old can do it, you can too!
This is a strongly suggest $24 add-on! We are a family business and we call it like we see it. It's our job to save you money. For a small additional fee. Our Robo Deadline Dialer will call up to 2 phone numbers (so spouses can't blame each other) on the deadline day so you don't miss it. Appeal windows open on different dates each year, so you cannot prepare for battle on the same day every year. Go figure. The whole system is setup to get your money and keep your money. We help you keep it in your bank instead of theirs. Thus, the idea is to "enroll now" and just go on with your happy life. Let us worry about the watching the dates and deadlines!
Thinking of leaving? You're not alone. We are now the #2 State people are leaving and Cook (Crook) county isn't going to lose the money. Instead, the tax burden will just get transferred to those who are stuck here. Our service is the #1 best thing you can do to help sell your home because property taxes are the #1 concern of buyers. Your service time is fully transferable at no cost. You can transfer it to the new owner and tell them you paid us in advance. There will be no cost to them, we only need their contact info. You can also transfer it to yourself, if you want to shoot yourself in the other foot by taking up yet another home in Cook county. That's right. We said it. We are a family business, we call it as we see it. It may take some getting use to it.
