Join CDEL on Wednesday, April 11th at 2 pm to volunteer for our annual Senior Tax Opportunity Program (STOP). Every year CDEL receives a list of senior homeowners who are at risk of having their taxes sold at the annual Cook County Tax Sale set to begin on May 4, 2018. This year over 600 seniors are on the list and CDEL will contact every one of them to educate them about their options, and provide instruction about how to obtain available exemptions to lower their tax burden.
On April 11th, CDEL will train volunteers from 2-3pm on how the tax sale works and available exemptions. Then, from 3-5pm volunteers will make calls to seniors and provide information over the phone. This volunteer opportunity is appropriate for attorneys, paralegals and students. One hour of CLE credit will be provided for Illinois attorneys. Please RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, email address and ARDC number (if applicable) and writing "STOP" in the subject line. The training will be in our office at 205 West Randolph, Suite 1610. We will provide pizza at 5pm to express our appreciation for your help with this important project. The training will be in our office at 205 West Randolph, Suite 1610.
