We're here...for property tax inquires.
River Forest recently underwent a property tax triennial reassessment. Notices were mailed to property owners in February and appeals were due in early March.

River Forest Township Assessor Pamela Kende and Deputy Assessor Deb DeChinistso assisted and serviced a large number of River Forest residents during the appeals process. They hosted a community outreach which was attended by approximately 90 residents.

In addition, during the extremely busy month of March, the Township Assessors office handled:

-- 622 phone calls
-- 284 emails
-- 105 visitors
-- 383 appeal packets
-- 136 exemptions
-- 25 Board of Review inquiries
-- 24 tax bills
-- 17 notary, name change and other requests

River Forest is fortunate to have a local Township Assessors office which is knowledgeable, experienced and accessible to serve its residents. Many thanks to Assessor Kende and Deputy Assessor DeChinistso for working over time in March to help River Forest property owners navigate the reassessment process.
