Meet Your Assessor, Mary Mahady
Fall is almost here! The year is going by quickly and we are now at that time when the 2019 Assessments will be published in the Herald (September 18, 2019) and you will be receiving your individual Assessment Notices on any property you own in McHenry Township. Please look these notices over as they will tell you what value we have placed on your property for this year.
I want to emphasize the importance of reviewing this notice. If you believe the value is not correct or that some of the information we have regarding your property is incorrect, you should call or come into the office. We can review the information we have in our records and answer any questions you may have.
If you decide you want to appeal the assessment, there is a limited time frame to do so. The final filing date will be listed on your notice and this year that date is October 18, 2019. We can explain the process to you and assist you with what is required in this process as far as evidence. Please start with my office before you hire someone to do something you may be able to do at no additional cost.
My staff and I are here to assist you Monday – Friday, 8:30 – 4:30 so please don’t hesitate to contact us. We have scheduled several dates and times where I will be available after hours and on two Saturdays to meet with you if you are not able to come in during our regular business hours. Please check out our “Extended Hours” page and call if you want to make an appointment. I will make sure you get the assistance you need, so even if one of the preset times does not fit in your schedule, we will find a time that does.
We are here to assist you so don't hesitate to call if you have any questions!
