Attention Homeowners of Glenview and the North Shore
Millions of homeowners have no idea they can actually lower their property taxes. They casually glance — or grimace — at their mortgage escrow notice every year and pony up without doing a thing.
Despite possible savings of thousands of dollars, only 2% of homeowners appeal their assessments, which is the first step in lowering taxes.
And here’s an even bigger disconnect: Some 60% of properties are overvalued by assessors, according to the National Taxpayers Union.
Failing to appeal assessments can lead to a dramatically higher tax bill than comparable properties in the neighborhood. This will cause your property to be less desirable to potential buyers when it’s time to sell.
What Can you do??? …..APPEAL!
