Walsh Law, LLC Property Tax Attorneys Challenge Improper Assessments and Valuations

Walsh Law, LLC attorneys assist residential, commercial and industrial property owners

Unjust valuations and assessments are a continuing burden on property owners. At Walsh Law, LLC, our property tax attorneys serve the Chicagoland area and are committed to providing an exhaustive investigation to assess the valuation of your property so we can develop a plan to reduce your tax burden. From there, we will assert your rights before the Assessor, Board of Review, and if we deem it necessary, at the state level before the Illinois Property Tax Appeal Board or the relevant Illinois Appellate Court.

We will investigate and expose assessors' errors

Agencies and contractors who conduct tax assessments have work backloads that often do not allow for a detailed review of each property. We can identify and seek relief for problems including:

·      Factual errors such as property size

·      Incorrect classification of structural improvements

·      A lack of uniformity between your property and similar properties in your neighborhood

·      Failure to provide the proper exemption your are entitled to

·      Failure to recognize relevant property conditions  

We value your time and money, so after a complete review, we will provide candid advice as to whether a property tax appeal is in your best interests.

Our experienced attorneys work to correct harmful valuation mistakes

Setting the actual property tax rate across an entire community depends on the relative value of each parcel. This is usually calculated by looking at the sales of comparable properties. However, as any landowner realizes, even when two properties seem identical to an outsider, their actual value might be far from equivalent. This can lead to an unjustly high rate. Our Chicagoland area lawyers will take the time to learn the intricate details that can lead to a sharp difference in actual value.
