Pre-file your Tax Year 2017 property tax appeal
December 2016 - The deadline to file a property tax appeal for Tax Year 2016 has passed for Stickney Township property owners.
Tax Year 2016 is the final year of the triennial assessment cycle for Stickney Township. Tax Year 2017 (payable in 2018) starts a new three year assessment cycle.
The ideal time to file an assessed valuation complaint is the begininng of the assessment cycle. In most cases, any reduction in assessed value granted by the County Assessor, or Board of Review, in the first year of the assessment cycle is good for all three years of the cycle.
Township Assessor Jay Grider anticipates the County Assessor will open Stickney Township for appeal in April or May of 2017. Property owners will have a second opportunity to file with Board of Review later in the year.
Stickney Township taxpayers can pre-file their 2017 property tax appeal through the Stickney Township Assessor's Office.
Taxpayers who receive the Senior Freeze exemption do not need to file an appeal. Homeowners never need to hire an attorney or consultant to file an assessed valuation complaint.
