In Cook County, Township Assessors do not assess property.  The Cook County Assessor sets assessment levels for all properties.  The Barrington Township Office cooperates with the Cook County Assessor's Office to assist you, the tax payer.  We are your "Tax Payer Advocate."

The following services are offered to residents of Barrington Township:

  • Assistance with Assessment Appeals filed with the Cook County Assessor's Office and Board of Review.
  • Assistance with the application and verification of exemptions.
  • Real Estate Tax Refund filing assistance.
  • Provide property index numbers (PIN) as required by local municipal variance applications.

  • Name and address change assistance for the various Cook County offices.
