Property Tax Appeals
The Rich Township Assessor’s Office is NOT open for property tax appeals at the present time. Please check the Cook County Assessor’s website www.cookcountyassessor.com > “Appeals” tab > “Calendars & Deadlines” > scroll down to “RICH.” It will then indicate a date when Rich Township will be open for the Cook County Assessor Appeals.
The Cook County Assessor’s Office has been informed that taxpayers are being solicited by people claiming to work at their office. These solicitors have been notifying taxpayers that they have missing exemptions and are encouraging taxpayers to hire them to file Certificates of Error on their behalf. The Cook County Assessor, as well as the Township Assessor, wants taxpayers to be aware that they do not need outside legal representation to file for a Certificate of Error. Certificate of Error exemption forms may be downloaded from this Web site (see below). Taxpayers may also call the Rich Township office and request that a Certificate of Error exemption form be mailed to them. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call.
