The Seminar – “The Nuts and Bolts of A Real Property Tax Appeal”, is intended to expose the attendees to various points of contact along the path of resolving a real property tax matter and to demonstrate the contribution of the real estate appraiser.

This Seminar will introduce attendees to the real property tax appeal process with demonstrations of appraiser direct examination. 

The Township Assessors for many are the first point of contact when an issue arises. A County Assessors plays a major role in receiving real property tax disputes, but not all County Assessors follow the same procedures. The County Board may decide in a way that moves the process along to the Illinois Property Tax Appeal Board that makes the final decision. The role of an Appraisers is substantial in the process of real property tax appeal.

The first-half of the morning session will offer insights into the Township Assessor Office, Cook County Board of Review, Cook County Attorney Office and Illinois Property Tax Appeal Board.

The second-half of the morning session will begin a “Mock Trial”. The mock hearing and ensuing discussion will include coverage of recent Illinois court decisions in property tax matters, such as Calumet Transfer, Carle Foundation, Madison Two, Meridian CUSD 223, Millennium Park Joint Venture, Minooka CHSD 111, Ontwentsia (1), and Ontwentsia (2). It will also provide updates to administrative rules related to the Illinois Property Tax Code. 

The afternoon session will complete the “Mock Trial” and open a Roundtable Discussion of the tax appeal process with all the participants – Appraisers and Attorneys, while taking questions from the attendees.

The educational content of this seminar will enrich the knowledge of Appraisers and Attorneys for use in their own professional and legal practices related to real property taxation. The Seminar intends to deliver the following amount of subject matter education:
