Q: If I think my assessment is incorrect, is it too late to file an assessment complaint?

A: Generally, yes; by state law, complaints to the Board of Review must have been filed within 30 days after your township’s assessment roll is published in the newspaper.

The only exception is if there is a discrepancy in the physical data about your property, such as the assessment being based on a 2,400-square-foot house when you actually have a 2,200-square-foot house.

To compare your property’s physical attributes to the assessment records, contact your township assessor.

Q: OK, then: How do I know who my township assessor is, and who do I call?
