In Illinois the tax appeal process begins with filing of a complaint at the local or county Assessor’s office. If further relief is warranted, the FMC team files a complaint with the Board Of Review, where our attorneys will present the merits of the case at an administrative hearing.
After the Board of Review has made a final decision on the complaint, the value of the property is certified for purposes of that year’s tax bill. Although the value is set, upon payment of that year’s taxes, the FMC team may seek additional relief by filing either a specific objection lawsuit in the county circuit court, or by filing a complaint at the Property Tax Appeal Board.
