Evanston Township Property Tax Seminar

Wednesday, April 04, 2007
Northwest Herald

Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin, 13th District, Cook County Assessor Jim Houlihan, State Senator Jeff Schoenberg, State Representative Julie Hamos  and Evanston Township Sharon Eckersall will conduct a property tax seminar for property owners in 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 2004.

One seminar is scheduled for property owners in Evanston Township:

Monday, April 16, 2007
6:30 p.m.
Levy Senior Center
300 Dodge Avenue, Evanston
Linden Room

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 the 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 will be available at the seminar. Evanston Township appeals are due on May 4, 2007.

“I encourage all Evanston Township homeowners to participate in our seminar 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.

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 seminar 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.

In addition, Commissioner Suffredin’s district office, 820 Davis Street, Evanston, is open to assist taxpayers by appointment. 

The Cook County Assessor’s office at the Skokie Courthouse and the Evanston Township Assessor’s office are also available to assist taxpayers.  The Evanston Township Assessor’s office can be reached at 847-332-2465.  The Cook County Assessor’s office at the Skokie Courthouse can be reached, 8:30-5:00 p.m. at 847-470-7237.

More information about the appeal process is available at Commissioner Suffredin’s website, www.suffredin.org .
