Taxpayers are encouraged to bring their assessment notices with them to the seminar. Staff from Assessor Houlihan and Commissioner Suffredin's offices will be present to answer individual questions regarding assessment appeals and exemptions.
The seminar will include general information on the assessment process, avenues for assessment appeals, resources available for verifying an assessed value is fair and accurate and important property tax exemptions that are available to Cook County residents. The deadline for Niles Township property owners to submit appeals to the Cook County Assessor's office is August 3, 2007.
"I encourage Niles Township homeowners to participate in the seminar to learn about the property tax system and the appeal process to possibly lessen the impact the assessment may have on their tax bills," stated Commissioner Suffredin.
Residents who would like more information on the property tax seminar may contact Commissioner Suffredin's office at 847-864-1209.
In addition, Commissioner Suffredin's district office, 820 Davis Street, Evanston, is open to assist taxpayers in person by appointment, Monday - Friday, 9:00 A.M. - 5:00 P.M. To schedule an appointment, call the Commissioner's office at 847-864-1209.
