Fast facts about Property Tax Appeals in Bloom Township

If you live south of 186th Street in Lansing, you are in Bloom Township. The Bloom Township timeline of Property Tax Reassessments and Appeals is different from that of Thornton Township, and the staff at their office in Chicago Heights shared this information:

  • The Bloom Township Assessor is Nora Martinez-Gomez
  • Her helpful office representative is Marquisha Wiley
  • Though the letter from Joseph Berrios that Bloom Township residents received did not specify the amount property taxes would increase, Marquisha estimates the increase will be “anywhere from $500 to $1,000”
  • October 15 is the last day to file an appeal with the Bloom Township Assessor’s Office
  • People who file an appeal will receive a letter in November letting them know if their appeal has been approved or denied
  • If your appeal is approved, the assessed value of your property will be lowered for two years
  • If your appeal is denied, you can appeal again in December with the Board of Review
