IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING 2014
The 2014 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 1.0199 for
Assessments are based on what your
property is valued at as of January 1, 2014. The market
"today" is not reflected until the 2015 assessment year.
Therefore, any sales or appraisals dated after January 1, 2014
cannot be considered until the 2015 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 2014 assessment year we must use
sales from 2011, 2012 and 2013.
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 period.
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.

decrease your tax burden, having your assessment reviewed and
