Local Taxing Jurisdictions

Property tax matters are complex, and many levels of government can be involved in the taxation of a single property. A town or county assessor will value the property; the Board of Review will adjudicate any appeals; and then taxes are billed and collected by the county Treasurer.

We have assembled the following list of links to give you a place to start if you have questions about the taxes you are paying on your commercial or industrial property. If you determine that you would like to contest your property taxes, it’s best to call the experienced attorneys at Golan Christie Taglia LLP, (“GCT”) for assistance. Most jurisdictions give you a very limited time to accumulate your evidence and file your appeals. Many times, in larger matters, other taxing bodies, particularly school districts, may intervene during different stages of the appeal process to contest your case.

The attorneys and staff at GCT will ensure that you meet the filing deadlines and will put forth the best case possible on your behalf. Bear in mind that commercial and industrial property owners must be represented by attorneys before a county Board of Review or the Illinois Property Tax Appeal Board.

Call on GCT to provide you with the best representation possible.
