Dear Friends,


Tomorrow evening, Tuesday, May 6, the Oak Park Township Assessor, Ali El Saffar, and I are sponsoring a property tax workshop for area property owners. The workshop is to help homeowners better understand their property tax bills, learn the implications of recent tax assessments and explain the tax appeal process for filing appeals with the Cook County Assessor. The appeal deadline for the Cook County Assessor is May 14. Property tax policy professionals will be available at the meeting tomorrow to provide help and guidance. If you believe that the assessment of your home is too high, you should consider appealing the assessment with Cook County.


Further, in late July, I will also be co-sponsoring an additional property tax appeal forum with Cook County Board of Review Commissioner, Larry Rogers Jr. This July forum is designed to help with appeals submitted to the Cook County Board of Review, and the deadline for that next step in the appeal process will be some time this coming fall. I will contact you again when the details of this July event and the deadline for the Board of Review appeal process are confirmed.


Tomorrow’s tax workshop will be held at Oak Park Village Hall, Board Room, 123 Madison Street, Oak Park, IL, 60302 from 7 to 9 pm. If you have any questions, please feel free to call my Constituent Service Office at 708-848-2002.
