The Cook County Board of Review — a three-member quasi-judicial body that hears property tax appeals — just closed the books on a record cycle. While property tax bills are expected to go out on time, the office is likely staring down the barrel of more record appeals, as Cook County Assessor Fritz Kaegi amps up reforms launched in the wake of ProPublica and the Chicago Tribune’s reporting on assessment inequities. On this episode of The Daily Line’s Aldercast, BOR Commissioner Michael Cabonargi talks about the “unsustainable” volume of appeals, his take on Kaegi’s reforms, and why the board can blame its odd schedule, in part, on the Great Depression.
