Property owners who aren't satisfied with their tax assessments after appealing through local channels can always take it a step higher to the Illinois Property Tax Appeal Board. However, they shouldn't hold their breath waiting for a response.
The state agency that many refer to as the Supreme Court of property tax appeals is so backlogged, officials there acknowledge it takes about two years — even longer in some cases — for a decision from the board.
