In an article with technical problems over at the Sun-Times, Terry Savage writes under a headline, “Little you can do in property tax battle”:
While home values are down, many homeowners are shocked by the increases in second-half-of-the year tax bills. Fingers are pointing at the assessor’s office, the Cook County Board and the state’s tax equalization factor.
I disagree. There is plenty you can do. You can vote out of office every corrupt self-serving politician who’s served more than two days in office and create a fresh start.
On the city level you get that chance in less than 90 days.
