David Dunkin Discusses How to Appeal Real Estate Taxes on Home Sweet Home Chicago
June 12, 2015

On May 16, Arnstein & Lehr partner David Dunkin was a featured guest on David Hochberg's Home Sweet Home Chicago radio show on 89 WLS. He discussed how to avoid mistakes with tax appeals, lowering your real estate taxes, and static exemptions for home buyers.

What's the number one mistake that people make with tax appeals? Surprisingly, the answer is not appealing at all. Dunkin explained that waiting for the tax bill to come out in Illinois is too late and strongly advises appealing as soon as the notice arrives.

Listen to Dunkin's segment below, which features more in-depth discussions around tax appeals and tax increases resulting from the school levy rising in your jurisdiction. He also answers a property tax question about exemptions from a condo owner looking to buy a house.
