Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin (District 13), the Cook County Board of Review, and Evanston Township Assessor Bonnie Wilson are sponsoring a property reassessment appeal seminar for Evanston Township residents, on Feb. 8 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Willard Elementary School, 2700 Hurd. (The seminar was originally scheduled for Feb. 1, but cancelled due to the blizzard.)

The Board of Review will conduct the seminar. The seminar will inform homeowners how to appeal, where to gather evidence for an appeal with the Board of Review and how to fill out and file the assessment complaint form for the 2010 assessment year. This assesment will be for taxes to be paid in 2011. 

Evanston Township residents have until Feb. 10, to submit their complaint forms to the Cook County Board of Review.

Taxpayers are encouraged to bring their Tax Bill, Assessment Notice or Property Identification Number (PIN) to the seminar in order to complete and submit complaint forms at the seminar. For more information about the seminar, call the Board of Review at 312-603-3644.

To schedule an appointment with Commissioner Suffredin’s staff for assistance in filing an appeal, contact 847-864-1209 or Assessor Wilson’s staff, at 847-332-2465.
