Letter from Commissioner Larry R. Rogers, Jr.
As the longest serving Commissioner at the Cook County Board of Review since 2004, I take my commitment to serving the residents and businesses of Cook County seriously. I am committed to making this office transparent, efficient, and accessible to ensure that taxpayers do not pay any more than their fair share of property taxes. My commitment and belief in the work of the Board of Review is why over ten years ago, I sought office to represent the constituents of the 3rd District. I knew that our work, reviewing property assessment valuation appeals, was important and the impact of our work on families, homeowners, and businesses was great.
Therefore, I made it a priority to educate property owners of their right to appeal their property assessments by going into the communities I serve and bringing the services of the Board of Review to taxpayers through my Community Outreach efforts. I recognized from the beginning that accessibility to the office was essential and I have worked diligently to leverage technology to make the office more accessible, efficient, and transparent. The employees of the Board of Review are here to serve you and will gladly assist you throughout the process, answer any questions you may have, and ensure that you understand what evidence you may need to best support your appeal and warrant a reduction in your property assessed value.
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 advocate for the nearly two million residents of Cook County that the Cook County Board of Review represents.
I encourage you to peruse our website, and consider appealing your property tax assessment if you believe you have been unfairly assessed. 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 by email, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 312-603-5540, if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions. It is an honor and a privilege to serve you.
Larry R. Rogers, Jr.
