Cook County Multi-Family Property Tax Appeals

Cook County Multi-Family Property Tax Appeals

To be considered multi-unit residential property, a parcel of real estate must be set up to accommodate several households in separate units.

  • Capitalization rates
  • Comparable properties
  • Errors
  • New construction
  • Operating income
  • Tenant rental income
  • Vacancies
