The RTA Difference
Any Device, Any Time: Do you prefer a computer over your mobile device? Are you always on the move and rely on your tablet or mobile phone? RTA has you covered with the first and only platform to appeal your residential property taxes using any device.
Don't Break the Bank: We use the same data as others that charge a percent of your savings. Why pay more? RTA helps Cook County residents lower their property tax assessments for a one-time, budget friendly cost. The more you save, the more YOU save!
If at first you don't succeed: We monitor the appeal calendar to ensure you file on time. If your initial appeal is unsuccessful, well prepare everything you need to file a re-review. If that doesnt work, the third time is often a charm with the Board of Review appeal. All three for the price of one!
Cook County IL homeowners have seen the assessed values on their property climb over many years, and some residents are paying far more property taxes than they should.
The Cook Countys Assessors Office is responsible for valuing the more than 1.8 million parcels in Cook County, and though they are doing their best to keep assessments fair and accurate, it doesn't always work out. Homeowners are encouraged to appeal their assessments each year if they believe theirs is too high, but the reality is that less than 20% of homeowners file an annual appeal.
Do I need the help of an attorney? The short answer is no. Cook County allows homeowners and property tax services like ours to have the same access that lawyers have to the public records and required documentation. Recent statistics show that most homeowners appealing to the Assessors Office do not use an attorney.
So why can't I just do this myself? You can! The question you need to consider is Do I want to spend the time to learn the process, search for comparables, identify the best candidates to use, and file the appeal?. If you have the time and desire, by all means go for it. Many people do. If you would rather have help at an affordable price and spend just a few minutes of your time, were here to assist.
