Stickney Township opens for appeal
June 2016 - The County Assessor has opened Stickney Township for appeal for Tax Year 2016 (payable in 2017). Property owners within the township will have until June 23, 2016, to file an assessed valuation complaint.
Taxpayers who are receiving the Senior Freeze exemption do not need to file an appeal. Homeowners never need to hire an attorney or consultant to file an assessed valuation complaint.
Tax Year 2016 is the final year of the triennial tax cycle. Any reduction in assessment granted through an appeal will be good for one year only. All property in Stickney Township will be re-assessed for Tax Year 2017.
Taxpayers will have a second opportunity to file a 2016 tax appeal with the County Board of Review later in the year.
Contact the Stickney Township Assessor's Office for more information.
