Evanston property owners concerned about their property taxes can submit an appeal to the Cook County Assessor through Sept. 9.
To help who the process, the Cook County Assessor’s Office is hosting a Facebook Live event for Evanston residents at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 25. Tune in live on Facebook or YouTube to learn more about the appeal process.
Property owners may file an appeal on their own online at cookcountyassessor.com/online-appeals. Filing online is a simple and quick process that should take no more than 20 minutes. Those who wish to see a list of available comparable properties should email Mitzi Gibbs at email@example.com.
Property owners seeking assistance filing an appeal can email Mitzi Gibbs at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit cityofevanston.org/onlineappeal to complete and electronically sign an appeal authorization form to have their appeal filed on their behalf.
It is highly recommended that property owners file their appeals online or complete an electronic appeal authorization form in lieu of in-person visits. The office will be available by appointment only through Sept. 9.
As a reminder, Cook County tax bills always arrive one year late. Property owners should note that the money-saving effects of successful 2022 appeals will not appear on tax bills until the summer or fall of 2023.
