As the saying goes, “there is no substitute for experience.” There are no books to teach the ins and outs of each government agency and jurisdiction when it comes to the handling of assessment appeals. It is only through hands-on experience that we have learned the unique preferences of each agency and the people who staff them.
Our real estate tax attorneys are involved directly in all phases of our work to ensure that our clients receive personal attention and the maximum potential benefit. We actively pursue every avenue to contest taxes, ranging from complaints with county assessors and boards of review to appeals before the Illinois Property Tax Appeal Board and lawsuits in the circuit courts. We not only appeal assessed valuations, but also contest tax rates.
Our services include petitions for tax exemptions and petitions for tax incentives, including Cook County class 6b, class 7, and class 8. The incentives we have obtained have saved our clients millions of dollars in taxes.
Our research and evaluation of property assessments is prepared without charge, so you have no risk in obtaining a free consultation to determine whether you are paying too much property tax.
We are retained on the basis of a contingent fee, and our compensation comprises a portion of the tax savings. No hourly legal fees are charged. Moreover, we are happy to tailor our fee structure to meet the particular needs of each of our clients.
