Skillicorn to Host Seminar on Illinois’ High Property Tax Problem

State Representative Allen Skillicorn (R-East Dundee) is hosting a second property tax seminar for residents of the 66th House District about how property taxes are determined and why they are so high in Illinois. The event will be held on October 5 at Algonquin Village Hall.

The seminar will feature Naperville Township Assessor, Warren L. Dixon, III, CIAO. Dixon is an expert on Illinois property taxes and the disparate factors and rules throughout the state that lead some communities to have a much heavier property tax burden than others.

“Everyone knows excessively high property taxes are driving people out of Illinois every day,” said Skillicorn. “There are a number of reasons why, but one of the biggest problems is the special deals cut in Chicago through loopholes that cause the rest of the state’s communities to offset a lack of state funding with more property taxes. This has to change.”

Thursday, October 5
7:00 – 8:30 p.m.
