** Please note that if you have received your property tax bill,

the time to file an appeal for that year's assessment has passed. **


The Kane County Treasurer's office reports that the 2014 tax bills are available online and have been mailed.  All questions related to your taxes should be directed to that office.  You may reach them by calling 630.232.3565.

The Assessor does not decide your property tax bill.  By State law, the Assessor only sets the valuation of your property based on a three-year weighted average of sales.  The three year period for your 2014 assessment is 2011, 2012 and 2013.

Your tax bill amount depends upon your tax rate, which in turn derives from the tax levies set by the taxing districts (schools, park districts, municipalities, et al.) that service your area.  Each taxing district gets to ask for the amount of money it needs for the next year.  In general, if they want more money than the previous year and they receive no opposition directly from the taxpayer, and within certain exceptions, the levy is increased.  When all of your taxing districts decide how much money they need, the County Clerk divides it among the property owners in the district.

If you consider the tax amount and/or tax rate on your property is too high it is your responsibility to contact the taxing district directly and let them know your views about reduce spending, maintaining the current levy amount or to even decrease it whenever possible.   Every district holds a monthly meeting that is open to the public.  Call them to confirm time and location.  Don't be discouraged that your one voice won't be heard - Every voice counts!
