Assessor - Appeals

Metadata Updated: March 1, 2024

This is a preliminary version of a new open data asset and will change before the final version is published. Use accordingly.

NOTE: Between Sept. 26, 2023 and Nov. 24, 2023, this data asset was missing a substantial number of rows due to an internal bug. If you pulled data from this asset within that time window, please re-pull it to fetch the corrected records.

Land, building, and total assessed values, pre and post-appeal with the Cook County Assessor’s office, for all Cook County parcels, from 1999 to present. The Assessor's Office uses these values for reporting, evaluating assessment performance over time, and research.

When working with Parcel Identification Numbers (PINs) make sure to zero-pad them to 14 digits. Some datasets may lose leading zeros for PINs when downloaded.

This data is parcel-level. Each row contains the assessed values for a single PIN for a single year pre and post-appeal. Important notes:Each row includes two stages: 1) mailed, these are the initial assessed values (AVs) estimated by the Assessor's Office and mailed to taxpayers. The columns mailed_bldg, mailed_land, and mailed_tot are the AVs for the building, land, and total, at the mailed stage. 2) certified, these are values after the Assessor's Office closes appeals. The columns certified_bldg, certified_land, and certified_tot are the AVs for the building, land, and total, after the Assessor has completed appeal decisions. Values in this dataset are not final assessed values for a given year as they are still subject to change if a taxpayer appeals to the Cook County Board of Review. At present, this dataset does not contain appeal decisions from this final third stage. However, the final stage AVs and appeal decisions can be downloaded from the Board of Review Appeal Decision History dataset. Due to the current transition from the county's legacy system to a modern system of record, appeal data is sparse prior to 2021. Values and change/no change decisions are available, but the reason, agent, and type fields will only be complete once the new system has been successfully batch updated with complete historical data. The values in this data are assessed values, NOT market values. Assessed values must be adjusted by their level of assessment to arrive at market value. Note that levels of assessment have changed throughout the time period covered by this data set. This data set will be updated monthly regardless of the Assessor's mailing and certification schedule. There may be small discrepancies between the Assessor's site and this data set, as each pulls from a slightly different system. If you find a discrepancy, please email the Data Department using the contact link below. This dataset contains data for the current tax year, which may not yet be complete or final. Assessed values for any given year are subject to change until review and certification of values by the Cook County Board of Review, though there are a few rare circumstances where values may change for the current or past years after that. Rowcount for a given year is final once the Assessor has certified the assessment roll all townships. Current property class codes, their levels of assessment, and descriptions can be found on the Assessor's website. Note that class codes details can change across time. Appeal
