OAK PARK TAX APPEAL PERIOD EXTENDED
UNTIL MAY 1
Contact: Ali ElSaffar, Oak Park Township Assessor
When reassessment notices were sent to Oak Park property owners on February 27, the notices indicated that taxpayers had until April 7 to contest their new assessed values. During this time, the Oak Park Township Assessor's office was available to help property owners who wished to file appeals.
When the coronavirus pandemic hit the United States in the middle of the appeal period, the decision was made to extend the deadline for filing appeals in Oak Park. The new deadline is May 1.
Although the Oak Park Township Assessor's office has already helped over two thousand local property owners file appeals, those who want to file an appeal but have not yet done so can call for an appointment during the extended appeal period. These appointments will not take place in person, but will instead be conducted over the phone.
Taxpayers seeking an appointment should call the Township at (708) 383-8005.
Effective: April 15, 2020
