Factors involved in community association property tax appeals
- Number of homes/condo units in the building
- How the space is divided between living units, common areas, and amenities
- The number of homes/condo units in the building that are currently being rented
- Condition of the condominium building
- Sales of similar homes/condo units
Why should your associaiton appeal as a group?
A group appeal is where all (or many) of an association’s units file a single property tax appeal. Illinois law allows a community association’s boards to file a single appeal on behalf all the association’s unit owners. To file as a group in a townhome or homeowners association, individual owners must formally opt in, granting the board the authority to include their units in one association group appeal.
Associations should appeal as a group for several reasons.
- First and foremost, County Assessors prefer one appeal, over dozens, or even hundreds, of owners filing separately. It’s administratively easier to process and the favored method.
- Second, the County Assessors place a single value on the entire building or development and reviewing that value is facilitated by an appeal including all units.
- Third, the County Assessor has a duty to uniformly assess all units within an association. The group appeal enables the County Assessor to meet this obligation.
