Moylan Announces Elk Grove Township Property Tax Appeals Seminar
04/18/2019DES PLAINES, Ill. – Continuing his efforts to help alleviate the tax burden many homeowners experience, state Rep. Marty Moylan, D-Des Plaines, is inviting Elk Grove Township homeowners to attend a Property Tax appeals seminar scheduled for Monday, April 29t at 6:30 p.m. at the Elk Grove Township building, located at 2400 S. Arlington Heights Rd. in Arlington Heights.
“As a state representative, it is my responsibility to provide resources to my community that will help address the alarming tax burden homeowners are facing every day,” Moylan said. “I encourage all Elk Grove township homeowners to attend this event with the Cook County Assessor’s office because they will be reassessing properties in Elk Grove Township this year, and your bill may change.”
The seminar will provide residents with information on how to appeal their property tax bill with Cook County. Residents of Elk Grove Township should bring their property tax bill, paperwork from any appraisal performed in the past 18 months and a closing statement if the home was purchased within the last year.
To help provide further relief, Moylan has voted multiple times over the years for a property tax freeze. These measures would prohibit any level of government from raising property tax rates unless approved by a majority of the voters.
“It’s important that residents understand their property tax bills and know how to properly appeal their assessment with Cook County,” Moylan said. “Attending this seminar will give residents the information they need to potentially save hundreds of dollars on their property tax bills.”
Cook County is mailing assessment notices to Elk Grove Township residents on April 18 and the last date for appeals accepted for Elk Grove Township homeowners will be May 20.
