Property Tax Assessment & Exemption

Neal Gerber Eisenberg’s property tax litigators have devoted their entire legal careers to the arena of state and local property tax. Real estate-savvy and highly skilled in all aspects of property taxation, our group manages more than 10,000 tax parcels nationwide. We challenge assessments to ensure that our clients pay only the minimal amount in property taxes required by law.

Assessment Review and Appeal

Our national real estate tax practice includes a strong focus on Cook County and the surrounding collar counties comprising the Chicago metro area. For all firm-managed properties, we annually monitor assessment records and challenge the legality of property tax levies in court actions. When we identify a tax savings opportunity, we advise on appeal rights and litigate assessment appeals all the way to the Illinois Supreme Court.

Illegal Tax Rate Litigation

We also serve as court-appointed lead counsel to the taxpayers of Cook County in annually filed court actions challenging the legality of property tax levies extended by the seven largest taxing districts. Our work in this highly technical area of property tax law has resulted in refunding millions of dollars in illegal property taxes to Cook County property owners.
