Tucked away on the sixth floor of the Cook County building, the county's Board of Review office is a place most people don't know about until compelled by the appeal process.
Click through the photos above for an inside glimpse into the world of property taxes at the Cook County Board of Review. This additional office is unique to Cook County's property tax system in the state of Illinois. Created as an extra layer of appeals for the property taxpayer, the board is comprised of three elected commissioners and their staff. One commissioner, Daniel Patlak, took some time to give Patch a personal tour for our property tax series, "Making Sense of Your Cook County Property Tax."
