If you need further assistance that can not be found this website, please contact the office of Assessor directly at 630-466-5255 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Assessor is responsible for assessing property at one-third of fair cash value with the exception of farmland, railroad or coal properties which are properties valued by the State of Illinois Department of Revenue. It is always encouraged and highly recommended to discuss your property assessment first and foremost with your local Assessor before ever filing with the Board of Review. The Assessor is the only elected official with exception to your States’ Attorney that requires a formal education and 2-yr certification along with yearly continuing education and is working directly for you.

Property in this Township, other than farmland and coal, is to be assessed at a 33.33% median level of assessment, based on the fair cash value of the property.
You may appeal your assessment to the Board of Review but it is highly encouraged and recommended you contact your local Assessor before filing a formal complaint as your Assessor has the authority and data to review your property and make adjustments based on a change in data or market values in your area and/or subdivision.
If you believe your property's fair cash value is incorrect or that the equalized assessed valuation is not uniform with other comparable properties in the same neighborhood after you have contacted your local Assessor's office; the following steps can be taken:
1. Contact your township assessor's office to review the assessment at 640-466-5255 or email at email@example.com or www.sugargrovetownship.com where you can discuss or prepare an internal complaint form for the Assessor to review prior to filing a formal complaint with Kane County.
2. If not satisfied with the Assessor review, taxpayers may file a complaint with the Kane County Board of Review. For complaint forms, instructions, and the Rules and Procedures of the Board of Review, call (630) 208-3818 or visit www.KaneCountyAssessments.org/BOR.htm for more information and a complaint form.
3. The final filing deadline for your township is generally 30 days from this publication date which is September 14th, 2015. After this date, the Board of Review is prohibited by law from accepting assessment complaints for properties in this township. For more information on complaint deadlines, call (630) 208-3818 or visit www.KaneCountyAssessments.org/Appeal.htm.
Exemptions can reduce your properties taxable assessment. For more information on exemptions, call (630) 208-3818 or visit www.KaneCountyAssessments.org/exemptions.htm
Your property tax bill will be calculated as follows:
Final Equalized Assessed Value - Exemptions = Taxable Assessment
Taxable Assessment x Current Tax Rate = Total Tax Bill
All equalized assessed valuations are subject to further equalization and revision by the Kane County
Board of Review as well as equalization by the Illinois Department of Revenue.

Q: My assessed value declined; why did my tax bill go up?
A: Your taxes may be higher than they were last year for any or all of four general reasons:
- Local governments (such as schools and municipalities) in your area may have approved a higher tax levy than last year.
- While most properties in the county have a lower value than last year, the rate of decline can be different. If your property's value declined at a faster rate than the average decline in your area (say, 8 percent as compared to a 3 percent average), your relative tax burden will be less than it was last year. If your property's value declined at a slower rate than the average decline in your area (say, 1 percent as compared to a 3 percent average), your relative tax burden will be more than it was last year.
- You may not be receiving all exemptions for which your property is eligible.
- Other properties in your area may qualify for one or more exemptions for which you are not eligible.
