Free property tax seminar set for Dec. 29
A free property tax seminar covering the appeal process is set for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 29, at the Schaumburg Township Office.
Attendees will learn the process they need to go through to appeal their property tax assessment, as well as have the chance to ask analysts from the Board of Review any questions they may have about the appeal process.
“Residents in our community are busy with families and work, we want to bring this seminar to the area to make the process as convenient as possible.” Schaumburg Township Library trustee Jillian Rose Bernas said. “As I walk door-to-door it is obvious that neighbors are concerned about their rising property taxes. I want to provide them with the tools to lower their assessment should they feel it does not accurately reflect the value of their property.”
The event will be hosted by Bernas, Schaumburg Township assessor John Lawson, Schaumburg Township trustee Nimish Jani, State Rep. Michelle Mussman and Cook County Commissioner Dan Patlak.
At the end of the seminar, attendees will have the opportunity to fill out and submit the proper appeal forms. Attendees should bring a copy of their most recent tax bill to the meeting.
Appeal forms are also available at the Board of Review office in Rolling Meadows located at 2121 Euclid Ave., Room 237, or the Chicago office at 118 N. Clark St., Room 601. Online appeals are also accepted at www.cookcountyboardofreview.com. Submitting an appeal is free.
The Schaumburg Township Office is at 1 Illinois Road, Hoffman Estates.
