VERNON HILLS, Ill. – State Rep. Carol Sente, D-Vernon Hills, is hosting a free property tax appeal workshop for Wheeling Township residents on Wednesday, August 16, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Vernon Township Community Services Building, located at 2900 N. Main St. in Buffalo Grove.
“Illinois property taxes are a major financial hardship for families,” Sente said. “I encourage all Vernon Township homeowners to attend my free property tax seminar.”
The Vernon Township Supervisor Daniel Didech, Vernon Township Assessor Gary Raupp and Vernon Township Director of Constituent Affairs Holly Kim will be on hand to explain the residential property tax assessment and appeal process in-depth. Homeowners are encouraged to bring their most recent assessment, a valid government-issued form of identification and any related documentation to help ask questions. The last day for residents of Vernon Township to file their property tax appeals is September 5.
During the spring legislative session, Sente voted for Senate Bill 484, which if signed into law would freeze residents’ property taxes for four years, increase the general homestead exemption for homeowners roughly 15 percent and provide qualifying seniors, veterans and persons with disabilities even greater property tax relief.
“Skyrocketing property taxes have made home ownership into a financial nightmare for many families,” Sente continued. “These free property tax seminars, like the one I am holding on August 16, can provide residents with real property tax relief.”
