Sue Johnston, Deputy Assessor, C.I.A.O.
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." _________________________________________________________________________________________________
