Schaumburg Township residents eligible for assessment appeals
Did your home suffer severe damage from recent storms, or do you think your home has been over-assessed? If so, the Township of Schaumburg can help you through the appeal process. The 30-day appeal period begins August 14.
Residents can appeal regardless of any recent appeals with the Cook County Assessor’s Office and/or the Cook County Board of Review. Over-assessment appeals can be made for the following reasons:
•If your property’s improvement value is assessed higher, per square foot, than other properties in your neighborhood of similar size, style, and construction.
•If the stated market value for your property is higher than the property's actual market value. An appraisal report or recent sales contract is needed.
•If the property description is incorrect. A minor error does not necessarily indicate an incorrect assessment.
Township of Schaumburg residents who experienced severe property damage following recent storms may also be eligible for a property assessment reduction. The Township Assessor’s Office will be accepting flood and catastrophic appeals for the same 30-day period.
To qualify, property owners will need to provide documentation that represents physical or structural damage on the property. All flood and catastrophic event appeals are reviewed by the Cook County Assessor’s Office. Assessment relief for personal property damage, routine maintenance, or typical weather repairs do not apply. Application forms and additional information are available here.
Additional information regarding property tax appeals can be found on the Cook County Assessor's website.
Any questions can be directed to the Township Assessor’s office via email or at (847) 884-0030 between 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on Monday – Friday. Additional information can be found on the Township Assessor's website.
