How Low Will They Go?

May I put you down for a yardsign?
It has come to your LakeCountyEye's attention that you can fight your property tax.

Who knew?

The how-to details are even posted on the Lake County website:
Taxpayers who believe that their assessments are unjust may appeal their assessed value. Taxpayers in Lake County begin the appeal process with the County Board of Review.
What can taxpayers do if they believe their assessments are unfair?
Note to Ops: The Lake County website is TL;DR. Instead just find a house in your neighborhood that is bigger than yours and assessed below yours. Then complain to your assessor.

What can he do? Your assessor will be forced to lower your assessment. Provided of course one of your neighborhood homes is assessed well under yours.

A win-win then for everyone!

No one should pay for these types of services when you can do it yourself.
