Appealing Property Taxes in Lincoln Park

In this article, our Lincoln Park property tax appeal attorneys discuss the process of appealing your Lincoln Park property tax assessment within that window. Each township and county in Illinois and Lincoln Park creates its own rules for property tax appeals. After you receive your property tax assessment in Lincoln Park, you only have a limited window in which to appeal, typically within 30 days. Your property taxes are linked to the fair market value of your home; however, when the fair market value of your home is uncertain, the tax assessment may be inaccurate. Due to the slow-paced real estate market, fewer homes are being purchased, making it difficult to get a fair estimate of what someone might pay for a home in your area, let alone a home similar to yours. Assessors do not have the raw data to work with as they did in the past, so they must refer to outdated information and do the best they can. Therefore, because many homeowners feel they have more accurate information than the assessor, they decide to appeal the assessment of their property.
