Citizens of Illinois’ 81st Legislative House District are invited to join State Representative David Olsen (R-Downers Grove) and local tax assessment experts on Saturday, August 13 for a free seminar on understanding the property tax assessment process and learning how to appeal property tax assessments. The event will be held from 10:00-11:00 AM at the Lincoln Center Auditorium, 935 Maple Avenue, Downers Grove.


Joining Olsen at the informational session will be Naperville Township Assessor Warren Dixon III, Lisle Township Assessor John Trowbridge and a representative from the Downers Grove Township Assessor’s office. “The assessment and appeals process can be very confusing, so it is my pleasure to bring experts together so that residents can gain a better understanding of how their tax bill is created, and what steps can be taken if a property owner feels he or she has been improperly assessed,” said Olsen. “Many homeowners feel they are being taxed out of their homes, and it is important that they understand the process and know what remedies are available to them.”


Due to space constraints, RSVPs are requested. If you would like to attend the property tax forum, please RSVP by calling Rep. Olsen’s office at (630) 737-0504.
