More than 100 Taxpayers Attend Rep. Peter Breen’s Property Tax Seminar in Glen Ellyn

On Saturday, September 24, more than 100 taxpayers from the 48th Legislative House District attended a free property tax forum in Glen Ellyn that was sponsored by State Representative Peter Breen (R-Lombard). Those in attendance learned about the tax assessment process and how to challenge an assessment that is believed to be inaccurate.

Breen was joined at the event by Milton Township Assessor Chris E. LeVan, York Township Assessor Deanna Wilkins and York Township Assistant Assessor Fred Beno.
Together they spoke to residents and explained the process that ties the value of their homes to the eventual tax bill that arrives in their mailboxes. The community leaders also outlined the steps required for appealing an assessment and took questions from audience members.

“It was a pleasure to partner with these local experts for this successful forum,” said Breen. “The procedure utilized to create assessments and tax bills is confusing, and I was glad to offer a program where people could learn about the process and have their questions answered.”
