Property tax assessment for property owners in all townships in DeKalb County except Sycamore and Sandwich townships will appear in Wednesday’s edition of the Daily Chronicle.
Property owners then have 30 days to appeal the assessed property value. If the township assessor declines to change your assessment, the next step is to file an appeal with the Board of Review and Appeals. Appeal packet forms are available on the County’s website in two categories: Commercial Property Appeals and Residential Property Appeals. Completed forms must be printed and mailed or delivered to the DeKalb County Assessment Office at 110 E. Sycamore St., Sycamore, IL 60178.
Property owners in the corporate boundaries of the City of DeKalb might expect their property values to have declined 9.12% from their 2012 assessment, according to staff projections contained in the backup material for the Nov. 12, 2013 regular city council meeting.
The council will consider a staff recommendation to increase the City’s property tax levy for Jan. 1, 2014 through Dec. 31, 2014 from $0.791 to $0.877 per $100 of Equalized Assessed Value (EAV).
A home assessed at $200,000 in 2012 paid $527.33 of their property tax bill to the City of DeKalb. If the assessment on the same house was lowered to $181,760 (a 9.12% decrease) in 2013 the city’s portion of the tax bill will increase to $531.35 (an 11% increase).
