Commissioner Suffredin and Assessor Houlihan Announce Property Tax Seminars

Thursday, June 05, 2003
Special to suffredin.org

Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin, 13th District, and Cook County Assessor Jim Houlihan will be conducting property tax seminars for residents of Chicago's 49th and 50th Wards who have recently been mailed Notices of Proposed Reassessment as part of the Rogers Park Township's 2003 City of Chicago triennial reassessment.  Residents of this township were last reassessed in 2000.
 

Three seminars have been scheduled for residents in Rogers Park Township:

Tuesday, Jun 17th
6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Rogers Park Library Park
6907 N. Clark Street
Saturday, July 12th
10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Warren Park
6601 N. Western Avenue
Saturday, July 12th
12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Warren Park
6601 N. Western Avenue

Taxpayers are encouraged to bring their assessment notices with them to the seminar.  Staff from the Assessor's Office will be present to assist residents individually in filing assessment appeals and exemptions.

A short presentation will open each meeting to provide 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. Appeal forms are included with the assessments notices and homeowners have 45-days to appeal if they have doubts about the accuracy of their assessment.

Commissioner Suffredin commented, "I encourage residents of the 49th and 50th Wards to participate in one of our seminars to learn about the property tax system and to take advantage of all exemptions which are available to them to lessen the impact the reassessment may have on their tax bills."  The Commissioner added that it is important for area residents to have opportunities like this to receive information and assistance in their own neighborhood.

Assessor Houlihan also feels it is important to visit neighborhoods which are being reassessed so residents can receive information about the assessment process, review their new assessment, and obtain assistance with filing appeals and exemptions. "I feel it is important to provide as much information as possible to homeowners regarding the avenues currently available for them to verify that they are paying no more than their fair share of the tax burden," commented Houlihan.

Residents who would like more information on the property tax seminars may contact Commissioner Suffredin's office at 847-864-1209 or Assessor Houlihan’s Office at 312-433-7550.
