text size: AAA

Township High School District 214 resolved Thursday to intervene on property tax appeals that request a reduction of $300,000 or more on property owned within the district.

The resolution gives the board power to intervene on appeals to "protect the taxing district's revenue interest."


The board will act on such cases when notified by the local county board of review and will intervene in proceedings before the state of Illinois Property Tax Appeal Board when the reduction of the assessed value is $300,000 or greater, as well as those under $300,000 if there was an appeal from the prior year.

If an appeal is filed and approved, the Board of Education of Township High School District 214 is responsible for doling out the appropriate real estate tax refund.

The board has 60 days to intervene after receiving notice from the local board of review, calling the intervention "necessary, desirable, advantageous and in the public interest to defend the board's real property tax base."

The resolution applies to 2010, 2011 and 2012 assessment appeals.
