Appeal Property Tax Assessments

If you are looking to appeal or contest your property taxes, first look at your  “Fair Cash Value” of your property on your tax bill, or if you’ve just received your assessor’s notice of assessment, and if you think the value is too high. Take the next step.

  1. Your first option is to talk with your township assessor, who placed the value on your property as of January 1, of that current tax year. They may be able to provide an explanation, agree with you, or propose a change.
  2. If you still disagree, you have a right to file an appeal with the McHenry County Board of Review within 30 days of the publishing date of your township. The filing deadline date is also located on your assessment notice.  THIS IS NOT LOCATED ON YOUR TAX BILL. 

As of date, the 2022 assessments have NOT come out.  However, to see the  2021 assessment publication information click on the below link to see last years filing deadlines.  Note last years filings deadlines for the townships are not indicative of this years filing deadlines.
