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.

Frequently Asked Questions about the 2014 (payable 2015) Kane County Property Tax Bills
April 25, 2015
Property tax bills for the 2014 (payable 2015) year have been mailed to every property owner at the last known available address; they can also be viewed on www.KaneCountyTreasurer.org.
The first installment is due June 1, 2015, and the second installment is due Sept. 1, 2015.
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.
