Orland Park Mayor Dan McLaughlin will host a property tax appeal seminar with Board of Review Commissioner Dan Patlak on Tuesday, November 12. Held at the Orland Park Civic Center beginning at 6:30 p.m., the program is offered for area residents wanting to appeal their 2013 property tax assessments.

Patlak will explain how property taxes are calculated and the appeal procedure of the Board of Review. Board of Review staff will be present to answer taxpayers’ questions.

“This is a great, local opportunity for everyone to learn how to file free tax appeals,” McLaughlin said. “We’ll have staff from the Board of Review on hand to answer specific questions about tax bills and explain how to appeal them,” the mayor added.

The event is free and open to the public and there is no fee to appeal. Attending taxpayers should bring their most recent tax bills. Questions should be directed to the Board of Review at 312/603-7356. Taxpayers may also appeal on-line at http://www.cookcountyboardofreview.com.

Appeal forms may also be obtained at the Board of Review located at 118 N. Clark Street-Room 601 in Chicago and at the Bridgeview Satellite Office located at 10200 S.76th Ave.
