If you own one of the 55,000 parcels that were noticed, you could be overpaying your property taxes in the Spring if you don’t act now.

More than 61,000 Lake County property owners should have received notices by now in the mail detailing the changes to their assessed values for 2015.  Although Lake County does not always send notices, about one fourth of the county’s parcels have already gone through the first year of the general reassessment and their values have been adjusted accordingly.

Is your commercial or industrial property being over-assessed?  Now is the time to act.  If you received a notice from the assessor’s office don’t wait until the tax bills come out.  It will be too late.  Give us a call to have a risk-free review and analysis performed on your property.  You could be over-paying valuable tax dollars that could be used toward your bottom line.

The deadline is coming up November 30th for all Lake County tax payers that received a notice on their property.



One Week Left For Porter County Appeals; Deadline August 31st

According to the Porter County Auditor’s Office, the county’s real property assessed valuation is up 3%, from $13.29 billion in 2014 to $13.68 billion this year.  While 3% may not seem like much, ask yourself this question.  Did your commercial or industrial property appreciate in value 3% over last year?

If that answer is no, there is still time to act.  Porter County appeals deadline is August 31st.
