Chicago Property Tax Appeal and Real Estate Tax Planning Lawyers

Cook County Property Tax Appeals Overview

Each year, untold numbers of property owners, who are over-assessed by the local Assessor’s office, end up paying far more in real estate taxes than is necessary. Navigating the appeals process can be confusing, tedious and time-consuming. We can help.

Law Offices of Gary H. Smith, a division of Kovitz Shifrin Nesbit, provides property owners with personalized and skilled representation on matters of property tax assessments and appeals for commercial, industrial, apartment buildings, hotels/motels and residential properties.

Over the years, the vast majority of cases handled by our office were awarded tax reductions. Of those, a significant numbers were reduced below the prior tax period. We are committed to extensive and vigorous argumentation on behalf of every client, and we often succeed where others have tried and failed. Furthermore, you pay no legal fees unless our appeal on your behalf is successful.
