SPARTA, Ill. – To help local homeowners find property tax relief and better understand the property tax assessment and appeals process, state Rep. Nathan Reitz, D-Steeleville, is partnering with Randolph County Assessor Doug Sachtleben to host a property tax review workshop for Randolph County homeowners later this month.

“As a member of the Property Tax Relief Task Force, I am continually working to find creative solutions to address the skyrocketing property taxes that are making some families consider moving and forcing others out of their homes,” said Reitz. “Homeownership is something that we should be able to take pride in, but rather many Southern Illinoisans feel as if they are being punished for owning a home.”

Reitz is inviting Randolph County homeowners to a property tax relief workshop on Wednesday, Nov. 20 at 6 p.m. at Sparta High School, located at 205 W. Hood St. Homeowners should bring a copy of their latest tax bill to learn more about the property tax assessment and appeals process, and to learn how to file an appeal and other ways to save.

“The property tax assessment and appeals process can be hard to understand, so this is a great opportunity to learn more from Randolph County Assessor Doug Sachtleben,” continued Reitz. “I encourage local homeowners to join me for my upcoming property tax review workshop and learn ways to potentially save on your next property tax bill!”
