ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. – With upcoming property tax re-assessments coming to Wheeling Township, state Rep. Mark Walker, D-Arlington Heights, is hosting a series of property tax appeal seminars throughout July to help residents navigate the appeal process.
“Concerns about property taxes continue to be the number one issue I hear about from residents,” Walker said. “I am committed to fighting to reduce property taxes in our communities, so to that end I think it’s important for residents to have a chance to appeal the re-assessments coming out in July. Property owners don’t have a lot of time to make an appeal after they receive their re-assessment, so I’m glad we’ve arranged a series of seminars to provide this important service for our communities.”
Re-assessments for Wheeling Township are slated to be released on July 5 and recipients will have approximately one month to file an appeal with the Cook County Assessor’s Office. With this deadline in mind, Walker’s office is hosting three appeal seminars throughout the 53rd District.
– The first will be at the Mount Prospect Public Library, located at 10 S. Emerson St. on July 11.
– The second will be at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library located at 500 N. Dunton Ave. on July 15.
– The final seminar, scheduled for July 24, will take place at the Prospect Heights Public Library, located at 12 N. Elm St.
– All events will begin at 6 p.m.
“I encourage every resident who can take advantage of these events to do so,” Walker said. “I’m glad that we were able to partner with various offices in our area as well and I thank those contributing to our seminars. Events like these are one important way to fight the skyrocketing property taxes in our area.”
