Property Tax Bills in the Mail, Many See Steep Increases

sudler-sothebys-logo29 October 2009 –GET YOUR CHECKBOOKS OUT…….
Bad news and not so bad news for Cook County and Chicago residents. The new tax bills will be arriving shortly and some residents may want to be sitting down when they open their mail. Most Cook County residents will be looking at a median increase of 10 percent, and in some areas, 20 percent. The better of the bad news is that the median increase in Chicago is estimated at 3 percent. For instance, Lincoln Park is looking at a measly 3 percent and Lakeview is even lower at a 2.1 percent increase. However, not all neighborhoods will fare so well. According to the Cook County Assessor’s office, the median increase in many of the other 77 neighborhoods will shoot significantly higher. Many of the lower income areas will see the highest percentage increase along with more middle-class communities near O’Hare airport.
