ALL TAX PAYERS:
2016 TAX BILLS (payable in 2017):
The bills will be mailed from Will County beginning of May 2017. They are due in two installments (only one bill is mailed). Due dates are usually June 1, 2017 and September 1, 2017, depending on day of week.
Please check your tax bill for any missing exemptions. They are explained on the back of your tax bill. If there are missing exemptions, please call or come in to our office as soon as possible to have it looked over. If you are not sure what you qualify for, please visit our “exemption” tab to see what is available. If you see no dollar amount in the senior freeze and you applied, please look at your assessments first. If your assessment is lower than the amount you were frozen at, there will be no adjustments made in that line item.
There are two separate factors that make up your tax bill; the tax rates and assessments. The tax rate is determined by taxing bodies in the area. They are listed on the tax bill. If you are concerned with the rate you are paying, please contact your taxing bodies. Please see our tab “Taxing District Info” for name and contact information. Budgets are set in the Fall and tax payers are encouraged to attend those meetings, which set the rates you pay.
The Assessor’s Office is responsible for assessing every property. When tax bills are mailed, it is not the time to appeal your assessment. Assessments for this tax cycle were finalized last September 2016. Any assessments that were changed by the assessor's office you would have received a notice in the mail in August 2016. If your assessment changed from the multiplier applied by the county only (1.0425) it was only published by the county. Assessments cannot be changed at this point. The new 2017 assessments will be sent out August 2017 if there is a change in the assessed value by our office, and again if it is a multiplier, that is published by Will County.
If you feel you would like your assessment reviewed for 2017 prior to the board of review dates, there is a tab for Assessment Review – follow the instructions and send the paperwork to our office by the deadline noted. Or please call our office and we will instruct you how to proceed. Please always note the deadlines on the notices for appealing. You DO NOT need a lawyer, tax consultant, or to pay a fee to have your assessments reviewed. This is what we do and we are here to help you understand the process. The assessment review is not for use by attorneys. Please call the office for information.
As always, if you have any further questions please feel free to call our office and anyone of our staff will be able to answer your questions.
