Additional workshops are scheduled for June 16, July 2, July 21, Aug. 4, Aug. 18, Sept. 1, and Sept. 15. All will begin at 6 p.m. in the same location. Click here for more information.

The Kane County Board of Review offers the workshops, which will:
  • Help taxpayers understand how property taxes work, including how government spending affects property taxes.
  • Dispel myths about assessments and their relationship 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.

Taxpayers and practitioners (attorneys, appraisers, brokers and other professionals) are welcome to attend.

For more information, call the Board of Review office at (630) 208-3818.
