A primary focus of our practice is real estate property tax appeals where we have been able to provide our clients with hundreds of thousands of dollars in tax savings over the years. Our typical fee is usually 33% of your first year of tax savings. However, THERE IS NO FEE IF WE ARE UNABLE TO REDUCE YOUR TAX BILL! Please contact us if you would like us to perform a FREE EVALUATION of the current assessed value of your property to see whether your property is a good candidate for a successful tax appeal.
We will guide you through the Cook County tax appeal process, which can include an appeal of your property assessment based on Lack of Uniformity, Overvaluation, Property Description Errors, Vacancy and/or changes to your property’s condition. These appeals can be made with County Assessor's Office, Cook County Board of Review and at the Property Tax Appeal Board in Illinois.
Marshiano Law Group, LLC provides free property assessment evaluations for prospective clients so that they may know if they have a chance for tax relief. Our team determines if a property appears to be fairly assessed or if our representation can assist in an appeal for an assessment reduction.
As part of our service, we gather evidence that supports the case for an assessment reduction, investigating comparable residential properties and by delving into issues of condition, valuation, income, occupancy and relevant market forces for both residential and commercial cases.
OUR SERVICES INCLUDE:
Although challenging assessed values by filing appeals is our main tax appeal service, we also can help clients examine their property descriptions, classifications and exemptions to determine if there are other opportunities to correct a property’s official record and save on taxes. We can further assist taxpayers with the discovery or recovery of assets; for example, when property owners mistakenly overpay tax bills or duplicate the payments of escrow agents.
In certain qualifying instances — when errors in assessment, exemptions, or characteristics are present — clients may be eligible for refunds for up to three prior years, and when engaged to help, Marshiano Law Group, LLC will represent the case and see it through the entire process.
Clients engage our firm for one tax year at a time, but most of our new clients renew our services as long as they have an opportunity for tax relief. Once our services have been engaged, Marshiano Law Group, LLC monitors assessments going forward, re-contacting clients with changing circumstances and assessments, and the cycle of services begins again.
