Skillicorn Hosts “Understanding Your Property Taxes”

Crystal Lake, IL… State Representative Allen Skillicorn (R-Crystal Lake) understands that out of control property taxes hurt Illinois families and is working diligently to solve the crisis. Residents are invited to join him along with tax assessment experts on Thursday, July 25 for a free seminar on understanding how property taxes are determined and learning how to appeal assessments. This event will be held at the Gail Borden Library in Elgin from 7-8:30pm. This event is free to the public and everyone is encouraged to attend.

Staff will be on hand to examine your property tax bill to see if you are receiving the exemptions you should. In addition, the State Treasurer’s office will be onsite with ICash personnel to search if you have unclaimed property. The State holds lost funds until either the original owner or their heirs claim them. Property is returned at no cost with the proper identification.

Joining Skillicorn at the informational session will be Mark Armstrong, the Kane County Supervisor of Assessments and Warren L. Dixon III, Naperville Township Assessor. “It’s my pleasure to assemble these tax assessment experts together to explain how tax bills are created and outline the process to follow if a taxpayer believes they are being over-assessed,” said Skillicorn.
