The Tax Bills Are Here!

The 2015 Second installment real estate tax bills for Cook County have been released as of 10:00am this morning.  For Chicago residents, this bill has been highly anticipated (dreaded) since the 2015 re-assessments were announced.  As I wrote earlier this year, may of you expect to get dinged pretty hard.

To see how bad the damage is, head over to the Cook County Treasurer’s website by clicking here.  Once there, click “continue” and enter your PIN.  If you do not know your PIN, head over to the Cook County Assessor’s website here.  Click “Dont know your PIN?” and enter your address.

LIFE PRO TIP!!!

If you are an owner occupant, and you do not receive a homeowner exemption, you are paying too much tax!!!!  The property tax information on the Treasurer’s website will indicate whether you have the exemption.  If you do not receive the exemption, and you qualify, please contact me immediately!  I will help you find the forms you need to submit to save hundreds immediately, and I will not charge you!

If you have questions about real estate taxes, or any other real estate matter, as always, you can contact me at patrick@loftus-law.com or 773-632-8330.  To see what my clients have to say about me, please visit me at avvo.com or on my oh page.  Cheers!
