So, what happened to all the grievances filed after the 2014 real estate tax revaluation – were taxes reduced? At the August 11th Village Board meeting, Village Manager Steve Pappalardo reviewed the status of all the tax grievances filed in 2014.
He reported the following:
The total number of grievances filed was 950, and the Board of Assessment Review considered all and reduced taxes for 163 of the applicants.
Following their review, 730 appeals were filed by applicants who did not receive reductions and as a result, 469 of these were settled, 30 went to trial and 19 received reductions.
146 certiorari cases were filed. According to Pappalardo, these are more involved legal proceedings that take years to settle. Out of those 146 cases, only one has been settled and 145 are pending.
The Village lost $154 million in assessed value across the appeals, which is a reduction of about 1.87%. The Village will make up this tax revenue loss by increasing taxes across all residents.
