CHICAGO – Continuing her work to fight against increasingly burdensome property taxes for local homeowners, state Rep. Fran Hurley, D-Chicago, is partnering with Ald. Matt O’Shea and state Sen. Bill Cunningham, D-Chicago, to host a property tax appeal workshop.
“I share frustration with local homeowners about skyrocketing property taxes that continue to rise each year,” said Hurley. “It is important that we fund critical programs like schools and local services like public safety, but lawmakers must continue to work to provide real relief for local families.”
Local homeowners are invited to stop by Hurley’s property tax appeal workshop with a copy of their latest tax bill to meet with staff from the Board of Review for assistance filling out appeal paperwork, and to ask any questions or share concerns. As a part of her continued work to fight for property tax relief for area homeowners, Hurley was recently appointed to the newly-formed Property Tax Relief Task Force, and passed a new law creating the Property Tax Relief Fund, a rebate for homeowners on the property taxes they’ve paid. She also supported a new law that will allow Cook County seniors to keep in place a critical homestead exemption that legally expired each year.
For more information, or to RSVP, contact Hurley’s constituent service office at 773-445-8128 or RepFranHurley@gmail.com.
