Appealing Your Assessment

Property taxes are levied by local government units that provide services to property owners. To further understand your tax bill, you may go to the Illinois Department of Revenue website or download the department's publication on The Illinois Property Tax System.

A tax rate is applied to your property based on the assessed property value. If you believe your property value has not been assessed correctly, you may first contact the Township Assessor. If the Township Assessor is not able to resolve your issue, you are able to file an appeal with the Lake County Board of Review.
