Will I be notified if my property taxes are going up?

You will be notified if your property’s value changes for a reason other than the chief county assessment officer used a multiplier to bring your property’s value to the statutory 33 1/3 percent level. In general assessment years, a list of all property assessments must be printed in a public newspaper published in the county. In the years between general assessments, a list of only those real property assessments that have been changed is published. Taxpayers in counties other than Cook must be mailed notices if their real property assessments change from the preceding year’s assessments (unless the change is caused by the chief county assessment officer applying an equalization factor.). The notices may be sent to mortgage lenders if arrangements have been made for tax bills to go directly to them; mortgage lenders must mail copies of the notices to their mortgagors, however.

If you have additional inquiries, you may submit them to the Questions, Comments, or Request form.
