IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING 2015 ASSESSMENTS
The 2015 equalized assessments are complete and can
be viewed on our web site. The assessed values listed
on this site have been equalized by the Kane County Supervisor of
Assessments with a factor of 1.0325 for Batavia Township.
Assessments are based on what your property is valued at as of
January 1, 2015. The market "today" is not reflected until the 2016
assessment year. Therefore, any sales or appraisals dated after
January 1, 2015 cannot be considered until the 2016 assessment
year. Per Illinois State Statutes we are mandated to use the three
previous years of sales to obtain the fair cash value for a current
assessment year. So for the 2015 assessment year we must use sales
from 2012, 2013 and 2014.
If you wish to have your assessment reviewed
further please contact our office prior to filing an appeal. We
request that you submit three comparable properties and/or sales
within your neighborhood. Comparable properties are considered to
be located in your neighborhood, approximately the same square
footage (within 200 sqft) and the same style as your home. If you
submit sales data, please be sure to include sales other than just
foreclosed or short sales that occurred within the three year
Upon completion of your assessment review, if you still do not
agree with our value, you may file a formal appeal with the Kane
County Supervisor of Assessments. The web address is www.kanecountyassessments.org.
There you'll find instructions and forms for property assessment
*** If your goal is to decrease your tax
burden, having your assessment reviewed and lowered is only a small
part of the process. Decreasing your taxes is achieved by
decreasing the taxing levies. To do this, contact the taxing
districts located on the front of your tax bill.
