Burr Ridge, IL… Do you wonder if you are paying too much in property taxes? Area state lawmakers Christine Radogno, Jim Durkin and Ron Sandack will be hosting a couple of FREE seminars on July 31, 2014 to help Lisle and Darien residents to better understand their tax bill and how to appeal a property tax over assessment.
“If you went into sticker shock when you opened your property tax bill, and feel your property is being over assessed – this is the seminar for you,” said Durkin. “This seminar is very informative as we reveal the mystery behind the process of how your property tax bill is determined and how to appeal if you believe your assessment is too high.”
Radogno said, “We are hopeful the seminar will help provide residents the tools they need to evaluate their tax bill and prepare a credible appeal. The better equipped we all are in these property tax matters, the more successful we will be in lowering tax bills.”
The first seminar will be held at 10:00 a.m. at the Lisle Township Tax Assessors Office, 4721 Indiana in Lisle. There will be a presentation explaining how taxes are assessed and how property owners can seek an appeal. Lisle Assessor John Trowbridge will assist in the presentation.
Darien residents are encouraged to attend the second seminar at 6:00 p.m. at the Darien Police Department, 1710 Plainfield Road in Darien. Theresa Cockrell, the Downers Grove Tax Assessor will assist with the Darien presentation. The Darien location is limited to 43 participants, so if you are interested in attending you will have to RSVP by calling Rep. Ron Sandack’s district office at 630-737-0504; or Jim Durkin’s District office at 630-325-2028 or Senator Christine Radogno’s Office at 630-243-0800.
A special thanks to Warren Dixon III who is the Naperville Township Assessor for his help with the presentation. Dixon will also be available at both seminars.
“My office receives calls regularly from constituents who believe their property assessments are too high,” said Sandack. “I would encourage any resident who is concerned with their tax bill to attend one of these informational sessions so they can learn how assessments are determined and how they may appeal those assessments if they believe they are too high.”
