As previously promised I am attaching appeal forms from last year from out on the Kendall County website. I will also add the State forms for reference. These forms could change between now and October but they have remained the same for quite awhile so I think you can use them although some tweaking may be necessary when you actually file in October/November. The forms will be available when the Editor gets them posted. As stated earlier, don't wait until you get your assessment letter. Start working on your forms today so it will be easier in October. The data needed to fill these out can be found on the County's website at: http://taxinquiry.co.kendall.il.us/forms/search.aspx.
The North Dakota Measure 2 vote was yesterday. This was a statewide vote to eliminate property taxes across the whole state. It was defeated almost 3-1. The people have vowed to continue the fight for a better way to pay for schools, cities, and counties in North Dakota.
We are currently planning a rally in Oswego for possibly July/August timeframe. We will keep everyone informed as details get finalized.
We have many people wanting to solve all the ills of taxation and unfairness in government today. As I have repeatedly told our group, we can’t be the answer to everything. You begin life crawling before walking. We can’t run a marathon without training, educating, and hard work. Same with property taxes. There are many facets that make our property taxes up. We must organize and work on each piece separately. We may need to take this all the way to Springfield to get the best results but we must begin this journey at the local level. These local officials are our friends, neighbors, and family. They must listen or they will hear us this fall or next spring at the ballot box.
