ST. CHARLES, Ill. - July 22, 2018 - PRLog -- Real estate attorney William "Bill" Blanchard successfully appealed a determination by the Will County Board of Review ("BOR") regarding the real estate tax assessment for a Homer Township homeowner ("Appellant").  The Illinois Property Tax Appeal Board ("PTAB") unanimously adopted the request by the Appellant for a reduction of his tax assessment. The BOR decided not to appeal the decision which now becomes final.

The Homer Township Assessor originally determined the fair market value of value of the 3,455 square foot, 2-story home in Hidden Valley Estates as $436,207, while the homeowner, represented by Mr. Blanchard at the BOR hearing, requested an assessment based upon a value of $380,800.  The BOA issued a "No Change" opinion which Mr. Blanchard appealed to PTAB.

PTAB's decision in favor of the homeowner to reduce the fair market value by $55,407 resulted in a 13% tax bill reduction for the homeowner on his 2015 real estate tax bill.  The over payment will be refunded by the Will County Treasurer. Mr. Blanchard said, "the homeowner was extremely happy with the outcome especially when told that the decision would entitle him to similar refunds for tax years 2016 and 2017 as well."  Blanchard continued, "I've now received reductions for 24 Will County homeowners who appealed decisions by the Will County Board of Review."
