Maine Township issued the following announcement on Oct. 5.
Maine Township residents will have their second opportunity to appeal the 2019 assessment with the Cook County Board of Review from October 7, 2019 through November 5, 2019.
Maine Township Assessor Susan Moylan Krey has alerted taxpayers that her office will assist in filing appeals between October 7 and October 30. The October 30 township deadline will allow the Maine Township Assessor time to transmit the paperwork to the Cook County Board of Review by the November 5 county deadline. This will ensure all paperwork is processed timely. Assessor Krey’s office will help file complaints and assist residents in finding comparable properties from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. The office will open early on Thursday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Unfortunately, due to budget cuts, the office is unable to hire additional staff to support the high volume and additional hours of operation. The office will be closed Monday, October 14, in observation of Columbus Day.
Offering this service at no charge is just one of the many benefits provided by your local township. If appeals are successful, residents will benefit from not having to pay an attorney plus have cost savings on their property tax bill. “My office is courteous, knowledgeable, efficient and cross trained to answer questions offering the highest level of service to our Maine Township residents. My staff goes above and beyond to assist our residents.” said Krey.
