Taxpayers Should Sign-Up Annually for An Assessment Review

Written by Ron Kingsley
LCA Tax Attorney and Owner

Lake County Appeal’s residential clients frequently ask: Should I sign up every year? Our answer is always the same (regardless of whether we found a property to be fairly assessed in the previous year or filed a successful appeal): Yes, you should sign-up every year for the following reasons: 
 
  1. Assessed values and home sale prices change each year. Each year, Lake County Appeal files hundreds of successful appeals for properties that we determined were fairly assessed in the prior year. Each year, Lake County Appeal also files hundreds of successful appeals for properties for which Lake County Appeal got a reduction in the previous year;

Each year, according to the Lake County Assessor's office, LCA obtains significantly more reductions than our closest competitor. This resoundingly positions us ahead of all other property tax appeal firms in Lake County. Congratulations LCA!
How Does the County Calculate My Property’s Assessed Value? 

The Chief County Assessment Office is responsible for assessing your property. The assessment should be the fair market value (what the county believes you could have sold your property for on January 1, 2023) multiplied by .3333 (for all Illinois counties besides Cook). Since 2023 is a general reassessment year (also for all Illinois counties besides Cook, which is on a rolling schedule), the assessor is required to consider the past three years’ sales figures to arrive at your assessment.

'Spring forward': A good time to check batteries in your smoke alarms
Article by Medical Xpress
March 10, 2023

Springtime is the perfect time to check every level of your home for working smoke and CO alarms, said Alexander Hoehn-Saric, chair of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). "Use this additional daylight to prevent home fires by cleaning clothes dryer vents."

So, he advised you to add these chores to your weekend "to-do" list: Replace batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms, and clean accumulated lint from clothes dryer vents.
About 360,000 residential fires happen in the United States each year, according to CPSC estimates. These kill 2,390 people, injure 10,860 and cause $7.34 billion in property damage.
Properly installing, operating, and maintaining smoke and CO alarms reduces the risk, the CPSC noted in a news release.

The group recommends installing smoke alarms on every level of the home, inside each bedroom and outside sleeping areas. Install CO alarms on each level and outside sleeping areas.
Test the alarms monthly. Replace batteries at least yearly, unless the alarms have sealed 10-year batteries. Timing battery replacement to the seasonal time change is an easy way to keep it in mind.
