Sara Feigenholz Sponsors Property Tax Appeal Workshops

If you're like most homeowners in Lakeview Township (and that includes everyone north of Fullerton, south of Devon and east of Western/Chicago River), your property taxes probably went up. State Rep. Sara Feigenholz is holding tax appeal workshops to help us sort it out:

To help local homeowners understand and appeal their property tax bills, State Rep. Sara Feigenholtz (D-Chicago) is co-hosting a Lakeview Township Property Tax Appeal Seminar on Wednesday, August 29. 

 “These seminars provide a one-stop shop for all homeowners to learn what they need in order to file their appeals,” said Feigenholtz. “The Board of Review provides excellent services of which every homeowner should take advantage.”

 Cook County Board of Review analysts and hearing officers will be available to answer questions and provide guidance to residents on how to file their property tax appeals. “Appeals filed this month have the potential to lower future property tax bills,” said Feigenholtz. “The deadline to file a property tax appeal in Lakeview Township is Tuesday, September 18.” 

Homeowners should bring copies of their old property tax bills with their Property Index Number in order to receive specified information. Feigenholtz is co-hosting the property tax workshop with State Rep. Ann Williams (D-Chicago), Senate President John Cullerton (D-Chicago), 10th District Cook County Commissioner Bridget Gainer, 12th District Cook County Commissioner John Fritchey, and the Cook County Board of Review.

 The workshop will be held at the 19th district Chicago Police Station located at 850 West Addison in Lakeview from 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. If residents are unable to attend this seminar, there will be a second seminar on September 13, from 6:30 p.m. – 8 p.m. at the Chicago Public Library Uptown branch located at 929 West Buena Avenue in Uptown.
