UPDATES FROM THE BLOOM TOWNSHIP ASSESSOR’S OFFICE


Appeals

The 2020 Reassessment for all south suburban townships is upon us. Reassessment notices for Bloom Township residents are tentatively scheduled to be mailed out late September and appeals will begin.  Appointments will be required and will be available on a first come first serve basis.  Taxpayers can also go online and file an appeal at the Cook County Assessor website.   Should the taxpayer miss the filing date, he or she can file their appeal with the Board of Review in late December.

Please see the helpful video on how to file an appeal online.

The 2nd installment property tax bill is scheduled to be mailed on June 30th with a payment due date of October 1st instead of the normal August 3rd due date. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, taxpayers are being granted 90 days in which to pay their property tax bill with no accruing of late penalties if paid on or before October 1st.

Please check your tax bill, once you receive it, to ensure that any exemptions(s) you may qualify for where applied. If your tax bill does not reflect your exemption(s) please call us immediately.

For help please email Elena Leal, Deputy Assessor at elenal@bloomtownship.org or call 708-754-9400.
