MAYBE YOU'VE SEEN US....
The Sugar Grove Township Assessment Office is continuously updating Property Record Cards. You may receive a knock on your door from our Assessor and or Field Deputy to update pictures and property information of all Township properties. This does not necessarily mean that your assessment will be increased. Per Statute (35 ILCS 200/9-155) every property should be looked at every four years. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the Sugar Grove Assessment Office at 630-466-5255.
IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING 2023 ASSESSMENTS
The 2023 equalized assessments are complete and can be viewed on our web site. The assessed values listed on this site have been equalized by the Kane County Supervisor of Assessments with a factor of 1.0832 for Sugar Grove Township. (35 ILCS 200/9-205)
Assessments are determined by a property's value as of January 1, 2023. The market "today" is not reflected until the 2024 assessment year. Therefore, any sales or appraisals dated after January 1, 2023 cannot be considered until the 2024 assessment year. Illinois State Statute (35 ILCS 200/1-55) mandates the use of sales studies for the three most recent years preceding the assessment year to obtain the fair cash value for a current assessment year. The 2023 assessment considers sales from 2022, 2021and 2020.
Please be advised that as a taxpayer in Sugar Grove Township it is NOT necessary to hire legal counsel or any type of tax appeal firm representative when seeking an assessment reduction.
If you have any questions or concerns about your equalized assessed value, we encourage you to contact the Assessor's office or submit a Request for Assessment Review (printable form HERE). Please provide three comparable properties located in your same neighborhood in the same style and similar livable square footage (200sf +/-) of your home's livable square footage. Other items that may affect value are location, amenities, construction quality and condition. There could be more factors that affect a property's value and will be determined as a property is individually analyzed.
Upon completion of your assessment review and an if agreement of value has not been reached you may file a formal appeal with the Kane County Supervisor of Assessments. The web address is www.kanecountyassessments.org. There you'll find instructions and forms for property assessment appeals.
*** If your goal is to decrease your tax burden, having your assessment reviewed and lowered is only a small part of the process. Decreasing your taxes is achieved by decreasing the taxing levies. To do this, contact the taxing districts located on the front of your tax bill. ***

If you need further assistance that cannot be found this website, please contact the office of the 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.
