Agency Narrative

The Property Tax Appeal Board (PTAB) continues to work diligently to issue decisions pertaining to the correct assessment of real property for taxation purposes. The biggest challenges facing the agency are the backlog of appeals and the ongoing need for increased staffing and funding to meet the increased demands placed on PTAB. PTAB's strategy to improve results is to increase staff/funding and by implementing an online filing portal to increase efficiency in processing appeals. PTAB received a record 57,000+ appeals in fiscal year 2021, and we anticipate receiving a similar amount in fiscal year 2022.
