Cook County assessments

This should make people want to cry when they see the estimated selling price.

http://southtownstar.suntimes.com/ne...es-office.html

"New Cook County Assessor Joseph Berrios says the property assessments he is sending out in the suburbs will list the market value of taxpayersí homes for the first time.

Berrios announced the change Wednesday as his office mailed out reassessment notices to 28,000 homeowners in Leyden Township.

The assessorís office is responsible for determining the value of a home for property tax purposes, and that information has always appeared on the notices. But now, the notices will include how much the home would sell for, which is one of the estimates the assessorís office uses to calculate assessments."

Is this based on Zillow prices? Will these people at least be able to get their tax bill lowered?

Doesn't sound like this will affect anything. This is data that they have always stored and used to calculate valuation but never displayed on the bill. I think it will help because it will show the property owner the info that they use. If it's way off it could be used to get the correct info into the system.

It won't mean much. It is just what they consider to be fair market value and it will be another number they can monkey with.

I had my assesment lowered via protest and then it was lowered again even more recently during the scheduled reassesment. You won't see any reduction in your tax bill until the 2nd payment.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

If it effects everyone, you won't see a reduction in your taxes. They just divide the amount of money they need, over the total houses. Now if you can somehow get the value of your house to go down, when everyone elses goes up.... then yes, you taxes would go down.

Speaking of which, just got my tax assessment for the Village of Rosendale, WI. House is valued at $267K and my taxes are $5412 for the year. Up $400 from last year. FML

Well, it's been available for a while, I think, but you had to either go online or to the actual assessor's office to find it. You can still find it online. For example:

Even if the value of your home goes down they will just raise the multiplier, tax rate, or lower exemption so the taxes will stay the same or will even go higher.

My tax bill was $600 lower in the second payment this year. The assesment has been lowered again. We'll see what that means in the 2nd payment next year.

Our WI taxes on the otherhand, went up about $500 or so last year. The state ordered the county to reassess everyone. They went out to every house that they could, but we didn't set an appt. so they did it off their data. i think it was fair. They have always shown what they think is the fair market value on their bills. I think it is still $50k at least under valued, so I am not going to argue with it. They actually went down $50 this year.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

Are you sure you're not mixing up assessed value with estimated selling price? They are two different numbers. Estimated selling price is one of the factors that goes into calculating the assessed value. To my knowledge the estimated selling price was never available to the public. I only see the assessed value on that link. Maybe I'm missing something.
