A GUIDE TO LOCAL TOWNSHIP ASSESSORS
Township assessors are responsible for valuing your property for tax purposes. They determine the fair market value of your home and use this information to calculate your assessment. Fair market value is the amount your home would likely sell for in a competitive, open market. This value is based on many factors, including your property characteristics, current sales of like homes in your area, and a sales ratio study that takes the three previous years’ sales into account. Generally, your assessment is determined by taking one-third of your market value and subtracting any exemptions that you may be entitled. Only your township assessor can tell you what factors went into your assessment. Assessors are also responsible for maintaining accurate property record cards for all properties within a township. The cards contain relevant information about your property like square footage, number of plumbing fixtures, year built, etc. You may contact your assessor’s office to view your card. You can also find property record information on the Kendall County Website. https://maps.co.kendall.il.us/mapviewer/?page=Property-Information

As soon as you suspect your assessment might be incorrect. Assessments are published in early to mid- September, and you have thirty days after the publication date to formally appeal your assessment. Our office is very busy just before the deadline to appeal, so the sooner you contact us, the more time we will have to address your particular issue.
What if I can’t come to a resolution with my assessor?
If you cannot come to a resolution with your assessor, you can appeal your assessment to the Kendall County Board of Review. There is a period of 30 days once assessments are published, in which you can appeal your assessment.
