SCHAUMBURG Township Gymnasium DES 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.

Cook County Board of Review Commissioner George Cardenas will lead the seminar, which will be held on Thursday, Jan. 19 at 6 p.m. at the Township of Schaumburg Gymnasium, located at 1 Illinois Blvd. in Hoffman Estates.

"Property taxes can be a source of stress for many, but residents don’t need to handle the appeals process alone,” said Murphy (D-Des Plaines). “This event will ensure residents of Schaumburg have access to the resources they need to address their property tax concerns."

Analysts will be available to answer questions after a brief presentation. Interested residents will need to bring either their second installment property tax bill or property tax index number.
