COMMISSONER SUFFREDIN, ASSESSOR JIM HOULIHAN, STATE SENATOR JEFF SCHOENBERG AND STATE REPRESENTATIVE JULIE HAMOS ANNOUNCE EVANSTON TOWNSHIP PROPERTY TAX SEMINARS

Monday, June 28, 2004
Special to suffredin.org

Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin, 13th District, Cook County Assessor Jim Houlihan, State Senator Jeff Schoenberg and State Representative Julie Hamos will conduct property tax seminars for residents of Evanston Township who have recently been mailed Notices of Proposed Reassessment as part of the Cook County triennial assessment. Residents of this township were last reassessed in 2000.

Three seminars have been scheduled for residents in Evanston Township:


SATURDAY, JULY 10th
10:00 A.M. - 12 NOON
Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center
1655 Foster Street, Evanston

TUESDAY, JULY 13th
7:00 - 9:00 P.M.
Chute School's Auditorium (District 65)
1400 Oakton Street, Evanston

THURSDAY, JULY 15th
7:00 - 9:00 PM.
City Council Chambers
Evanston Civic Center
2100 Ridge Avenue, Evanston


There will be a meeting with members of the Evanston Chamber of Commerce to discuss commercial properties on July 15, 2004.

Taxpayers are encouraged to bring their assessment notices with them to the seminar. Staff from the Assessor and Commissioner Suffredin's offices 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 assessment notices and homeowners have 45 days to appeal if they have doubts about the accuracy of their assessment.

"I encourage all Evanston Township homeowners 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 assessment may have on their tax bills," stated Commissioner Suffredin. The Commissioner added that it is important for area residents to have opportunities like this to receive information and assistance in their own neighborhoods.

Assessor Houlihan commented, "I feel it is important to provide as much information as possible to homeowners regarding the avenues currently available to them to verify that they are paying no more than their fair share of the tax burden."

Residents who would like more information on the property tax seminars may contact Commissioner Suffredin's office which he shares with State Senator Schoenberg and State Rep. Hamos at 847-864-1209 or Assessor Houlihan's office at 312-433-7550.

In addition, Commissioner Suffredin's district office, 820 Davis Street, Evanston, is open to assist taxpayers in person, Monday - Friday, 9:00 A.M. - 5:00 P.M. Assistance on Saturday mornings is available by appointment only.

The Evanston Township Assessor's office is also available to assist taxpayers. The Evanston Township Assessor's office can be reached at 847-332-2465.
