Assessor

Message From Your Assessor, Mary Mahady

We are wrapping up the 2020 Appeal Season.  If you filed an appeal last September, you should be receiving a Final Notice of Decision sometime in early March, 2021.  You may also go to the McHenry County website, follow this link http://publicrecords.co.mchenry.il.us/pa_assessments/ to view the decisions and assessor responses.

Should you see our township vehicles in your neighborhood, please note that we are updating information for the property record cards of properties in your area.

If you are concerned about renewing the Senior Assessment Freeze, Disabled Veterans and Disabled Persons exemptions, please contact the McHenry County Assessments Office at (815) 334-4290.  They would have the most up to date information available.

Please review your property tax bill when you receive it at the beginning of May, 2021.  Be sure to verify if you have the homestead exemptions you are entitled to.  If you do not, please contact my office.

We are planning a few Zoom and Facebook live forums for taxpayers to interact with your Township Assessor.  This will take place the second Wednesday of every month at 3:00 pm. Here is the current video.

Senior Freeze

To County has extended the filing date to September 15, 2020.

The County has extended the filing date to September 15, 2020.  If you had the Senior Freeze exemption last year, the County will automatically renew the exemption this year without having to submit this year’s application.  Please call the County Assessments Office at (815) 334-4290 to request to be sent the form for 2021.

Homeowner Exemption

If you should be receiving this exemption but it does not show on your tax bill, please call us. We can verify this with the proper documentation and submit a correction to the tax bill, but you need to contact us. If you are not sure, just call and we will check for you.

Senior Homestead

You are eligible for this if you have the General Homestead exemption and anyone on title is 65 or older.

As much as we like to see you, please call if you have any questions as we can rectify most situations over the phone. Our first priority is to keep you safe and until we can fully open to the public, we will find a way to take care of you any way we can…just call!   

We look forward to being able to see you in person soon. Until then, stay safe and stay healthy!
