The property tax and assessment system in Illinois is set by the Illinois Constitution, Illinois Compiled Statutes, and the Illinois Department of Revenue. Here at the Assessor’s Office we are responsible for determining the assessed values of properties for tax purposes. By law, assessments are based on sales. We are unable to reduce assessments based solely on the hardship of a pandemic.
Please contact your state legislators to inquire about the creation of tax breaks related to the pandemic.
Contact your local taxing bodies if you have questions regarding how/where your tax dollars are spent. A list of your taxing bodies is on your most recent tax bill.
