SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – To help provide local homeowners with information and assistance on appealing property taxes, state Rep. Sue Scherer, D-Decatur, partnered with the Macon County Supervisor of Assessments office to host a free property tax appeal seminar.

“As I speak with area residents throughout my district, property tax relief is among the most frequently discussed issues,” Scherer said. “Families who are already struggling to make ends meet deserve relief from property taxes that continue to increase, even as home values decline.”

Scherer’s property tax appeal seminar brought out over 30 local homeowners and attendees were able to ask questions about the property tax appeal process and find out more information about various exemptions they may qualify for. Scherer is encouraging homeowners who were not able to attend to call her office at 217-877-9636 if they have questions or would like to find out if they qualify for an exemption or freeze.
