    Come see how you can resist over-taxation:

    Kane County Property Tax Forum

    Wednesday, April 27th, 2011
    7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
    Brewster Creek Forest Preserve Lodge
    6N21 Route 25 in St. Charles
    (This is the former YWCA Camp Tu-Endie-Wei)

    As Illinois suffers with high unemployment and governments at every level near
    bankruptcy, the burden is falling more and more on local homeowners to foot the bill
    despite plummeting home values.

    What can be done?

    Join Americans for Prosperity, Kane Co 9/12, Kane Co Assessor Mark Armstrong and
    Kane Co Treasurer Dave Rickert to learn how the assessment process works, how
    to potentially lower your property tax bill, and how you can get involved to help make
    government live within its means.
