Over Valuation

A couple purchased a home for $300,000 in an arm’s-length transaction, but the Assessor estimated the market value at $360,000 - a full $60,000 above the actual price. This is a sign that the owners will be paying more than they should in taxes.

Property Description Errors

A house is listed at 1700 square feet of living space, but the Assessor shows it at 1900. When the Assessor measurements show a higher square footage than actual, an owner is paying tax on more house than she owns.

Why Choose Property Tax Solutions?

We are one of Cook County’s premier property tax law firms. We have saved tax dollars for tens of thousands of Cook County property owners by checking all the angles to maximize reductions in assessed valuations. We want to do the same for you.

If we don’t reduce your taxes, you don’t owe us. That’s why we have a vested interest in lowering your tax bill, and that’s also why Attorney Greg Hilton evaluates every appeal at least once, often twice, before evidence is submitted.

When our appeal saves money on your taxes, we simply split the savings 50/50 for the year we filed the appeal. If that year happens to be your Triennial Reassessment, 100% of any savings in years 2 and 3 goes directly into your pocket.
