Reassessment Notices Mailed to Barrington Township Taxpayers

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Business

Cook county Assessor Joseph Berrios announced that reassessment notices were mailed to close to 5,300 single-family and 400 condominium homeowners in Barrington Township. Each year, the Cook County Assessor’s Office reassesses one-third of the nearly 1.8 million parcels of property located in Cook County. “Assessed Value” is 10 percent of market value. This year, the Assessor’s Office is reassessing properties located in north suburban Cook County. Barrington Township is the third township to be mailed in the 2016 reassessment of North Suburban Cook County.

Reassessment notices contain proposed values for property Tax Year 2016, which will be reflected on Second-Installment Tax Bills, which will be due in the summer of 2017. The time to file appeals on these proposed assessments is now, however, when the reassessment notices are received. The deadline date for appeals for Barrington Township is April 18, 2016. Assessor Berrios stressed that homeowners do not need an attorney to file an appeal. There is no fee involved. A single-family homeowner may compare his or her assessment to those of similar homes. The proposed assessments for Barrington Township will be published in the Barrington Courier Review on March 31, 2016. The Assessor’s web site located at ( also allows taxpayers to search for assessment information on reassessed properties.
