DES PLAINES – State Senator Laura Murphy (D-Des Plaines) knows just how frustrating it can be to receive an assessed value – and, in return, property tax bill – that is much higher than expected. To help residents navigate how those numbers are determined, she is hosting a free virtual assessed value seminar next week.

“Home assessments and property taxes can be both confusing and burdensome,” Murphy said. “People deserve full transparency on how their assessed value is determined.”

Next Tuesday, Nov. 16, Murphy will host an online workshop at 6:30 p.m. to break down the process of property tax assessments. She will be joined by Cook County Assessor Fritz Kaegi's staff to teach residents more about how their assessed value is determined, what goes into determining the assessed value, and how that factors into  their property tax bill. Staff will provide an opportunity to ask questions.

The virtual event is free and open to the public, yet registration is required. To register visit
