Alderman Edward M. Burke
Homeowners are asked to bring the 2nd installment of their property tax bill or their property index number (PIN).

 “After a taxpayer files the one-page complaint, the Board will analyze comparable properties to determine if the property is assessed at too high a value,” Commissioner Cabonargi explained. “Taxpayers may also present an appraisal, comparable properties, or any other evidence showing the fair market value of their property.”

There is no fee to appeal to the Board of Review.

Those taxpayers unable to attend this outreach event are urged to file online at
