Hinsdale high schools suspend challenging property tax appeals

If you bought a home in Hinsdale and challenged a property tax assessment that you thought was too high you might have found attorneys for Hinsdale District 86 high schools opposing your appeal, according to a recent report in Trib Local.

The assessment appeal challenges have been suspended for a bit, but the financial squeeze facing almost every local government body is likely to surface more conflicts between taxing bodies and homeowners in the coming years.

It’s not uncommon for a property owner to be assessed by a dozen or more local entities ranging from school districts to park districts to mosquito abatement districts and community colleges and so on. Is it fair for a homeowner to have to contend with any or all of these in a property tax assessment appeal?
