Welcome to the Board of Review

The Board of Review is a government office that provides the taxpayers of Cook County an opportunity to appeal the over-valuation of property assessments.

The Board of Review consists of three Commissioners elected in three separate districts in Cook County.  The Board of Review is vested with quasi-judicial powers to adjudicate taxpayer complaints or recommend exempt status of real property, which includes: residential, commercial, industrial, condominium property, and vacant land. The Commissioners and entire staff at the Board of Review are dedicated to serving the taxpayers of Cook County. Our mission is to provide an efficient and accessible service to all property owners. It is our commitment to review each appeal with careful consideration to ensure a fair and impartial judgment, regarding your assessment.

The Commissioners invite the taxpayers of Cook County to file an appeal at the Board of Review. The appeal process has been streamlined, under their guidance, to meet the needs of the people. Please review our website to pre-register, file an appeal, or better understand the appeal process.

 We look forward to serving you.
