Your assessment should be one-third of the market value of your property. If you live in Stephenson County, email Ron Kane at firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
