Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin announced a free property tax appeal seminar for New Trier Township residents.

New Trier Township is being re-assessed by the Cook County assessor. As such, New Trier residents can file appeals from March 29 to April 29. Commissioner Suffredin is hosting the property tax seminar to help residents better understand how their assessment was determined and to help them file an appeal with the Cook County assessor.

“It’s important for all homeowners to appeal to the Cook County assessor their property tax assessment annually to ensure they are paying their fair share,” said Suffredin. “My staff can analyze your assessment and file any missing exemptions.”

The seminar will take place on Thursday, April 4 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Wilmette Community Center, 3000 Glenview Rd., Wilmette.

Commissioner Suffredin’s staff and staff of the New Trier assessor will be on hand to explain the residential property tax assessment and appeal process in-depth. Homeowners are encouraged to bring their most recent assessment and any related documentation to help ask questions. New Trier residents can file their property tax appeals from Friday, March 29 to Monday, April 29.

Other event sponsors include Cook County Assessor Fritz Kaegi, State Sen. Laura Fine, State Reps. Robyn Gabel and Jennifer Gong-Gershowitz and New Trier Assessor Jan Churchwell. The seminar will review how to file a property tax assessment appeal and other areas of interest to property taxpayers.

The Cook County Assessor will also accept appeals online for New Trier residents at cookcountyassessor.comstarting March 29 through April 29.
