State begins flood damage assessments
You could get some tax relief if your property in Cook County flooded.
You may qualify for property assessment reductions.
The assessor’s office says it will send teams to document the damage, to see if property tax bills can be lowered.
FEMA and state agencies are now handling preliminary damage assessments in Cook, DuPage, and Lake Counties.
That could lead to federal grants and low interest loans for property owners.
