Dear Citizens:

2023 is a QUADRENNIAL reassessment year. This means that by Illinois State statute, every parcel will receive a revised assessment notice in August of 2023, regardless of if the value of your property has changed or not.  It will show the prior years assessment, Township assessment, then Will County assessment after any multipliers applied.

In DuPage Township, every subdivision is reviewed every year to determine what is happening with the market, whether it is going up, down or staying the same.  Appropriate factors are applied to the subdivisions if needed, and notices are sent. During the years between the quadrennials, if there is no change in value, the parcels do not receive notices.  If only a township multiplier is applied by Will County, no notices are sent, however, the multipliers are published in a local paper chosen by the county, as this is more cost effective for the taxpayers.

Quadrennial assessed value notices are used for the 2023 tax bill, which is payable in 2024. The notice is not a bill and will not reflex any exemptions! Remember these values are as of January 1, 2023.  Please keep in mind the following:

  • Assessed value is 1/3 of market value (.3333).
  • Assessments are based on 3 years of adjusted valid sales prior to the assessment date.  2023 values are based on adjusted sales from 2022, 2021, and 2020 – not current market.
  • Once the notices are sent, there is a 30-day period in which you can formally file an appeal at the Will County Board of Review.
  • At this time, you may file an Assessment Review Inquiry located on this website if you do not agree with your assessment.  Please note the deadline for doing so is July 05, 2023.  This allows the homeowner enough time to file a formal appeal if they do not agree with the townships review.  
  •  Exemptions will NOT appear on this notice.  This includes senior freeze amounts.  HOMEOWNERS MUST REVIEW THEIR TAX BILLS EVERY YEAR TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE RECEIVING THE APPROPRIATE EXEMPTIONS.   IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION, PLEASE CALL OUR OFFICE FOR A REVIEW.
  • You may choose to hire a lawyer or a tax consultant, but this is what we do, and are here to help you understand the process and there is not a charge.
  • If the property is a recent sale, please contact our office before filing.  We may be able to avoid the appeal process, depending on the process. 
  • If your argument is equity or sales comparables. Find three comparables within your subdivision, if possible, of the same or similar style and size.  Our office does not do the research for you.  For sales use the 3-year period, old sales do get adjusted for time with multipliers.  They must be valid sales (not foreclosures, short sales, bank sales, etc.)
  • If you believe there is an error or have a question on what you are being assessed for, please contact us prior to filing. Check our website with your PIN and make sure everything is accurate.  Please note that not all amenities are published on the website, so if you have a specific question, please reach out to us.  Please know that we are constantly updating our system, and we will be happy to review your property information with you.

Formal appeals are submitted electronically once the appeal time is open. To file a formal appeal with Will County Board of Review, please visit their appeal portal at borappeals.willcountysoa.com.  DuPage Township does not have Board of Review appeal forms in our office. The deadline to file an appeal is published on their website and the notices.

  • You cannot appeal your TAX BILL.  If you are upset regarding the amount of taxes being paid, you must contact your local taxing bodies (school district, library, park district, etc.).  The taxing bodies budgets are what sets the tax rates.  Assessments are just a simple proportionate way of distributing the tax burden equitably.   We suggest not comparing taxes to others because 1- everyone doesn’t have the same house 2- rates vary by districts 3- everyone has different exemptions.  Review your own property and we are happy to answer any questions.

2022 Notices and Assessment Process Information:

In DuPage Township, we look at all subdivisions/neighborhoods every year to monitor what is happening with the market.  Assessments need to be at approximately .3333 of the market value which is based on 3-year prior valid adjusted sales.  Appropriate factors are applied to certain areas if needed, and notices are sent.   In a non-quadrennial year, if there are no changes made by the township office, the parcels do not receive notices.  If a township multiplier is applied by Will County, no notices are sent; the multiplier is published in a local paper chosen by the county, and it is posted on appropriate websites.  This is more cost effective for the taxpayers and has been the practice for many years.  DuPage Township received a 1.0695 multiplier from Will County for 2022. It has been a fast-rising market, and most of the townships in Will County have received multipliers between 1.05-1.10.

THE 2022 ASSESSMENTS ON THIS WEBSITE ARE NOT FINAL VALUES. THEY ARE VALUES AS OF THE PUBLISH DATE  BY THE COUNTY.  THEY DO NOT INCLUDE ANY CHANGES MADE AT THE LEVELS CURRENTLY OPEN.  THE FINAL VALUES WILL NOT BE POSTED UNTIL THE BOARD OF REVIEW HAS CLOSED THE BOOKS AT THE END OF THE YEAR. IF YOU HAVE QUESTION ON ANY SPECIFIC VALUE, PLEASE CALL OUR OFFICE WITH THE PIN NUMBER AND WE WILL BE HAPPY TO HELP. 

Notice values and multipliers are used for the 2022 tax bill, which is payable in 2023.  Notices are not a bill!  

     

When a multiplier is applied, that does not necessarily mean the tax bills will go up that amount. The Assessor’s office does not set your tax bill or amounts.  Your taxes are based on budgets of the taxing district’s where the property is located. This appeal process is NOT to appeal your TAXES, only assessments.  If your tax bill amount (rate) is what is in question, then check the center of the bill for all the taxing districts and contact them about their budget hearings.  The rate is what makes your tax bill.  An assessment is apportioning a tax burden within a taxing district fairly.  If you need to find your tax bill amount, visit website of Will County Treasurer at www.willcountytreasurer.com to review current bills and past bills.
