Meeting with Assessor Leadership

The Cook County Assessor’s Office is dedicated to providing information to the public. Meetings with Assessor Leadership will be held for property owners or their representatives who would like to discuss appeal results or seek clarification regarding their assessment. During the meeting we will be available to discuss topics of procedural issues, while prepared to discuss general policy and specific property valuations. Meetings with Assessor Leadership will be held every Thursday from 9 AM to noon. These meetings will allow the requestor to meet at least two Senior Staff of the Cook County Assessor’s Administration to discuss their case.

Anyone interested in requesting a meeting must do so through email by close of business day on Monday. Requestors will be notified by email if their request was granted or denied. The Cook County Assessor’s Office reserves the right to deny a meeting where a previous meeting was conducted or the applicant did not follow the appeal rules. Priority will be given to property owners who wish to discuss the appeal or assessment of their property.

The Assessor’s Office is committed to continuing these meetings. However, due to the impact of COVID-19, the Assessor’s office will be using Zoom to accommodate these requests. Changing these meetings to a virtual setting is safe for the public and the Assessor’s staff, but, most importantly, allows our office to continue serving the public. 

These meetings will begin the week of June 8th, 2020.
