Tax appeal window opens in West Town

By Neal McKnight

West Chicago Township is now open for tax appeals with the Cook County Board of Review through May 17.

Neighborhoods that are included in West Chicago Township would be East Village, Bucktown, Wicker Park and Ukrainian Village. You can challenge your tax assessment every year, not just after a reassessment, but there is only a 30-day annual window for appeals through the Board of Review.

Join us at our May 2 meeting at 7 p.m. to learn about the appeal process. Aaron Bilton, Board of Appeals Commissioner Michael Cabonargi's chief of staff, will assist with assessment appeals. The meeting is at the Happy Village, 1059 N. Wolcott.

On May 4, Cabonargi's outreach staffers present a property tax seminar at 6 p.m. at Holstein Park, 2200 N. Oakley Ave. They'll explain the process and help homeowners complete appeal forms.

Attendees are asked to bring their tax bills to help file appeals. Property owners who cannot attend the meeting can download the form from the Board of Review website.

Ald. Scott Waguespack says his office at 2657 N. Clybourn Ave. will collect forms until May 16 to turn into the Board of Review.
