Letter from Commissioner
Larry R. Rogers, Jr.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the Cook County Board of Review -- the agency designated to review property tax assessment appeals and reduce assessments where supported by evidence. I encourage you to peruse our website, and consider appealing your property tax assessment if you believe you have been unfairly assessed.

As an attorney at the law firm of Power, Rogers and Smith, I have a long history of advocating for victims’ rights, representing individuals and consumers who have suffered injuries or lost loved ones due to negligence by individuals, corporations and even government.

Now, I am focusing my time on advocating for the nearly two million residents of Cook County I represent.

Elected from the 3rd District in 2004 as Commissioner of the Board of Review, I have made it a priority to educate property owners of their right to appeal their property tax assessments. I am committed to making sure that property owners understand and have access to the assessment appeal process. The employees of the Board of Review will gladly assist you throughout the process.

There is no fee to appeal your property tax assessment, and the Board of Review will not raise your assessment or the assessments of your comparable properties.

As always, please be sure to contact my office at 312-603-5540 if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions. It is an honor and a privilege to serve you.

Sincerely,

Larry R. Rogers, Jr.
COMMISSIONER
