Local property tax forums scheduled for homeowners

MORRIS – Local homeowners interested in learning about the process for determining property taxes and how to appeal are invited to attend outreach forums that will be held July 30 sponsored by state Rep. John Anthony, R-Plainfield.

The forums are called “Understanding and Appealing Your Property Tax Assessment.”

These free forums will include a presentation about the property tax assessment process including information from local assessors’ offices followed by a question-and-answer session with staff knowledgeable about property tax policy, according to a news release from Anthony’s office. Free informational brochures also will be provided.

“Our forums are designed to educate and empower homeowners to understand the property tax system and to know their rights if they believe they have been over-assessed,” Anthony said in the release. “I encourage every local homeowner to attend one of these workshops and share their questions and concerns with us about property taxes.”

Forums scheduled for July 30 are:

• 10 a.m. at Channahon Village Hall, 24555 S. Navajo Dr., Channahon

• 6:30 p.m. at the Morris Municipal Services Facility, 700 N. Division St., Morris
