Hey, Aurora Township residents! (Yes, that means you, whether you live in the city of Aurora or unincorporated areas of Aurora Township.) Your property assessments are ready for publication, which means (a) you can find out the assessed value of your home, and (b) you have about a month to formally complain if you don’t agree with that assessed value.
Assessment changes for Aurora Township are being published Tuesday, July 21, 2015, in The Aurora Beacon-News. As of that date, you can also view an online PDF version on the Supervisor of Assessments website.
That publication also starts the clock ticking for the time period you can challenge that assessment. Pursuant to state law, the deadline to file 2015 assessment complaints for the properties within Aurora Township is Aug. 20, 2015. No complaint for property in this township can be accepted after that date.
After all revisions and corrections by the township assessor are applied, an equalization factor is calculated. Each non-farm property in Aurora Township was equalized with a factor of 1.0881.
