Real Estate Taxes

Now that you have received your real estate tax bills, it is time to think about filing a tax complaint if your property is over assessed.  Your assessment should be one-third of the market value of your property.   If you live in Stephenson County, email Ron Kane at assessor@co.stephenson.il.us or call him at 815.235.8260 and ask him when you can file a complaint for 2013 on your tax assessment.  Ask him to notify you in writing when a complaint can be filed.
