The Kane County Board of Review will again offer property tax workshops for Kane County taxpayers in 2014.

The next workshop is set for 6 p.m. Monday, July 14, and it will be held in the Auditorium of Building A of the Kane County Government Center, 719 S. Batavia Avenue in Geneva.

Additional workshops are scheduled for Aug. 5, Aug. 19, Sept. 2, Sept. 16, and Sept. 30.  All will begin at 6 p.m. in the same location. The workshops will:

  • Help taxpayers understand how property taxes work, including how government spending affects property taxes.
  • Dispel myths about assessments and their relationships with property taxes.
  • Explain the assessment complaint process, and provide the necessary forms and rules for filing complaints.
  • Provide an opportunity for taxpayers to make sure they have all homestead exemptions to which they are entitled.

The workshops are not forums to discuss any specific individual assessments; these questions are best directed to the assessor of the township in which the property is located.

Both taxpayers and practitioners (attorneys, appraisers, brokers, etc.) are welcome to attend. For more  information, call the Board of Review office at (630) 208-3818.
