Bush007cSPRINGFIELD — With the second installment of property taxes due for Lake County residents tomorrow, Senator Melinda Bush reminded constituents that there are additional ways to push for property tax relief in Lake County.
“You do not have to accept your property tax bill as-is,” said Bush, D-Grayslake. “If you believe your assessment is wrong, you can and should challenge it. You can even receive help with the process by attending workshops in the area.”
Lake County residents can challenge their property tax assessments by contacting the Chief County Assessment Office at (847) 377-2050. Residents can also visit taxpayer advocates in the Assessment Office at 18 N. County St. in Waukegan from 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m., or filing an online appeal at
Residents can also attend the following seminars at the University of Lake County hosted by taxpayer advocates on the following dates.
University Center of Lake County
1200 University Center Drive, Grayslake
Wednesday, Sept. 7
4 p.m. – 7 p.m.

Saturday, Sept. 10
9 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Wednesday, Sept. 14

Wednesday, Sept. 21

“While constituents are fighting their property tax assessments, I’m challenging the status quo to reduce the property tax burden,” Bush said. “I passed historic legislation to consolidate government in Lake County, and voted for and sponsored a bill to freeze property taxes. These are reforms we need to enact now.”
