We will also make sure you are receiving all the exemptions that apply to you and check if you are eligible for a refund for prior years.
Please contact our office for an appointment to appeal your property assessment. Walk-ins are welcome, but keep in mind that appointments will be priority.
We are still doing our “Socks for our Servicemen Program”. New socks donated will be taken to the Annual Winter Standown held on the Northside of Chicago. I volunteered in my first Standown Three year ago and it left a great impression, especially as a son of a Vietnam Veteran. Since, the first Standown in 1993, this 3 day event has provided medical services, housing opportunities, employment assistance, food and clothing. This event is geared toward the hundreds of homeless veterans and veterans that need a helping hand. So, when you stop by, please drop off a brand new pair of socks if you can, thank you in advance.
For questions or concerns regarding your property taxes please don’t hesitate to call our office at (708)788-6600, email us, or visit us at our office located at 6600 W. 26th street, Berwyn, IL.
