If you buy or sell your home, the name and address on record is not automatically changed. To ensure each property owner receives any new “Notice of Proposed Assessed Valuation Change” for new construction or for Triennial Reassessments, and to ensure all Township residents receive a copy of their first and second installment property tax bills each year, residents should complete name and address correction forms.

Senior Assessment Freeze Applications and Senior Homestead Applications are available at the Orland Township Assessor’s Office. Please call (708) 403-4222 to learn what documentation is necessary to complete these applications.

Senior Tax Deferral Applications are available at the Cook County Treasurer’s Office, located at 118 N. Clark St., Room 112, Chicago, IL, 60602, from Jan. 1 thru March 1 of each tax year. Applications and complete instructions can be downloaded by clicking here.

Residents who own their home as of Jan. 1 of the year in which they are applying, and use that home as their principal place of residence, are entitled to a reduction in their equalized assessed valuation of $7,000. This exemption will reduce the total tax bill by $600 to $800 each year. This reduction also is available for those who lease their homes and are responsible for the payment of property taxes.

All townships within Cook County have two opportunities each year to protest or appeal the assessed valuation on their property. The first opportunity to file an appeal is through the Cook County Assessor’s Office, which establishes a yearly calendar to assign specific dates during which each township is open to file appeals. At the beginning of each tax year, the Assessor’s Office displays a tentative filing date for each township. As the year progresses, the calendar is updated to reflect the actual appeal filing period. A taxpayer may file an appeal only when the township filing period has been established. This filing period lasts approximately 30 days.

The appeals calendar is available on the County Assessor’s website (click here), or taxpayers may call the County Assessor at (312) 443-7550. Taxpayers may also call the Orland Township Assessor’s Office at (708) 403-4222 for more information.

The second opportunity to file an appeal is through the Cook County Board of Review. The Board of Review also publishes a yearly calendar to assign specific dates during which residents of each township may file appeals. This filing period also lasts approximately 30 days. The Board of Review calendar, however, is not updated until just prior to each township’s period to file appeals. This calendar may be viewed online (click here) or you may call the Board of Review at (312) 603-5542 for appeal filing date information. Taxpayers may also call the Orland Township Assessor’s Office at (708) 403-4222 for more information.

The Township Assessor’s Office also provides assessment information, property ownership, sales data, building permit information, and permanent index number inquiries to realtors, banks, appraisers, and residents. We provide residents or potential new property owners with tax estimates for current year taxes, and perform inspections of properties throughout the Township to determine a correct address or condition of the property.
