On Aug. 15, Cook County Assessor Fritz Kaegi released the initial assessments of residential and commercial properties in Thornton Township, which includes Homewood north of 183rd Street and east of Western Avenue.
“I strongly encourage property owners to review their reassessment notice to ensure their property characteristics and market value reflect their home,” Kaegi said.
Assessments reflect market value over the last three years. Kaegi said his office will be partnering with Cassandra Elston, Thornton Township Assessor, to assist property owners and explain reassessments in their community.
“We are here to help property owners. Residents are encouraged to attend a workshop to address their concerns regarding their reassessment notices,” Elston said.
The Cook County Assessor’s Office will present information about how to understand their reassessment notice and explain how values are determined. Workshops provide an opportunity to determine if an appeal should be filed, an overview of the online application, and teach homeowners about available property tax savings
Appeals for Thornton Township can be filed until Tuesday, Sept. 5.
In-person appeal workshops will be held on Monday, Aug. 21, in English and Thursday, Aug. 24, in Spanish from 6 to 8 p.m. at Harvey City Hall, 15320 Broadway Ave.
