The Cook County Board of Review will begin accepting property tax assessment appeals earlier this year, according to a press release from Oak Park Township Assessor Ali ElSaffar.
ElSaffar says the appeal season runs July 1-30 this year, unlike in the past when the appeals period was held during the month of August.
Oak Park Township will offer guidance in navigating the appeals process and give tips on taking appeals to the Board of Review.
The Board of Review also is hosting a meeting, where Commissioner Larry Rogers Jr. will walk residents through the appeal process.
The meeting is co-sponsored by Oak Park Township Assessor and state Sen. Don Harmon and will take place at 6:30 p.m. on July 30 at Percy Julian Middle School, 416 S. Ridgeland Ave.
