    "Per State Statute, General Assessment Years, also called Quadrennial Years, occur every four years.  During those years, local township assessors must reassess every parcel in their township, regardless of age, location, size, or value of improvements in Lake County. All properties located in the City of Chicago (Cook County) are scheduled to be reassessed by the Cook County Assessor for the Triennial Reassessment. Come hear more about what this means for you and how it will impact your property taxes."
