prop tax appeal 102121DES PLAINES – Residents will be able to learn more about the property tax appeal process and how to lower their property tax bill at an upcoming workshop co-hosted by State Senator Laura Murphy (D-Des Plaines).

Cook County Board of Review Commissioner Michael Cabonargi will lead the workshop, which will take place at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 28 at the Des Plaines Library, located at 1501 Ellinwood St.

“High property taxes are the number one issue I hear about from residents,” Murphy said. “We’re working on long-term property tax reforms in Springfield, but to provide some relief in the meantime, residents should consider appealing their property tax assessment to potentially lessen their tax burden.”

Residents are asked to bring their second installment property tax bill to the workshop, and to have their property index number on hand for reference.

Face masks will be required at the event, but an outdoor table will be set up for residents uncomfortable gathering indoors.
