IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING 2015 ASSESSMENTS
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. The web address is www.kanecountyassessments.org. There you'll find instructions and forms for property assessment appeals.
*** 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. ******Please Note*** Not every taxpayer will receive a notice. Only those assessments changed by your Assessor will receive a notice. Assessments only changed by the county equalization factor will NOT receive a notice. Please call our office if you have any questions. My staff and/or I will be glad to discuss them with you. You may reach us at 630.879.1323 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday - Friday. Thank you, Tammy J. Kavanaugh, Assessor
