Chicago Tribune endorses Allen Skillicorn for State Representative

I’m honored to receive the endorsement of the Chicago Tribune. Proves that the people of Illinois have the will to reform our state! #IL66

“66th District: Republican Allen Skillicorn has an important characteristic that makes him Springfield-ready: He led a movement to freeze the tax levy in East Dundee, where he is a trustee. He understands the urgency to enact policy changes that make Illinois friendlier for businesses and residents. He faces Nancy Zettler, D-Algonquin, an attorney who says she’s running to represent the middle class and end “corporate welfare.” Maybe she doesn’t realize most of the corporate giveaways during the last decade in this state were handed out by Democrats, not by Gov. Bruce Rauner. Skillicorn is endorsed.”

Daily Herald: Skillicorn is endorsed!

“Allen Skillicorn, in his second term on the East Dundee village board, has been a strong voice for fiscal conservatism in town, pushing for a property tax freeze and lobbying against special financing districts.

Skillicorn is endorsed largely for his experience pushing tax relief in his village.”

McHenry County Property Taxes: Residents vote with their feet – NWH

By KEVIN P. CRAVER – Northwest Herald

EDITOR’S NOTE: This is part one of our series Property Taxes: Follow the Money. For Illinoisans, property taxes are a sore spot. Illinois has the second highest property taxes in the nation, and McHenry County is in the top 10 for highest property taxes in the state. Illinois also ranks first in the country with nearly 7,000 taxing districts, which makes examining one’s tax bill a confusing exercise. While taxpayers are annoyed by the price tag, property taxes are also a primary source of revenue for local taxing bodies. This series examines some of the issues in Illinois for residents and taxing bodies.

Elgin Township Property Tax Appeal Deadline

Elgin Township Property Tax Appeal Deadline – August 22

Elgin area property tax assessments were recently published in the newspaper as required by law. There is only a 30 day window every year to appeal your property assessment. Once this deadline is passed, the next opportunity will not be until next year. The deadline to appeal your 2016 assessment is August 22nd, 2016.

Your property tax assessment determines how much of the property tax levy you pay. Local governing bodies (i.e. schools, villages, park districts) request the taxes and your property assessment determines how large a share you pay.

Increased assessments and higher levies will increase your property tax bill.
