EAST DUNDEE -- State Rep. Allen Skillicorn (R-East Dundee) is hosting a second property tax seminar for residents of the 66th House District about how property taxes are determined why they are so high in Illinois. The event will be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 5, at Algonquin Village Hall, 2200 Harnish Drive.

The seminar will feature Naperville Township Assessor Warren L. Dixon III, who holds an active Certified Illinois Assessing Officer designation since 2000. Dixon is an expert on Illinois property taxes and the disparate factors and rules throughout the state that lead some communities to have a much heavy property tax burden than others.

"Everyone knows excessively high property taxes are driving people out of Illinois every day," said Skillicorn. "There is a number of reasons why, but one of the biggest problems is the special deals cut in Chicago through loopholes that cause the rest of the state's communities to offset a lack of state funding with more property taxes. This has to change."

Please RSVP by contacting State Rep. Skillicorn's office at (815) 893-4884 or e-mail Visit for more information.
