STREAMWOOD, Ill. – State Rep. Fred Crespo, D-Hoffman Estates, will help local residents reduce their property tax bills at two property tax appeal workshops in early October with local leaders and the Office of Cook County Assessor Fritz Kaegi.
“Whether it was through my work to ensure seniors do not miss out on their exemptions or ensuring local schools are less dependent on local revenues, we took good first steps to begin the process of delivering real property tax relief for the middle class,” Crespo said. “I’m working with local leaders to bring resources to my community to ensure families and seniors are able to navigate the appeal process.”
Crespo will host appeal seminars on the following dates and at the following locations:
- Wednesday, Oct. 2 at 6:30 p.m. at the Hanover Township Senior Center, located at 240 S. Route 59 in Barlett.
- Tuesday, Oct. 8 at 6 p.m. at the Park Place Recreation Center, located at 550 S. Park Blvd. in Streamwood.
These events are free and open to the public. Experts will be on hand to help local residents understand the process of appealing the assessed value of their homes. Homeowners can learn about the basics of property assessments, how to appeal the assessment and what exemptions are available. Homeowners are encouraged to bring their most recent assessments and a valid state ID or driver’s license to receive help. Homeowners can print the necessary appeal documents at tinyurl.com/yxe8xr44 (case-sensitive) and fill out as much as they can before the event.
“The appeal process can be complicated, so I encourage people to join us at either of these events and bring forward any questions they may have,” Crespo added. “In the meantime, I’ll be serving as member of our bipartisan group to deliver comprehensive solutions to lower the tax burden on middle class families and seniors in our community.”
