Sample Property Tax Report for a Jackson County, IL property

The State of Illinois does not have a statewide property tax. Property taxes are determined at local levels, and pay for services such as schools, libraries, park districts, fire protection districts and others. In Illinois, taxable property includes only real property such as land, buildings or permanent facilities. Additional information regarding property tax in Illinois can be found in the general tax guide.

Market Values

The Jackson County Chief Assessment Office overviews the activity of the Township Assessors, which are in charge of establishing the market values, for all taxable real property in Jackson. Market value has been defined by The Supreme Court as the sale price of real estate as agreed upon between a willing buyer and willing seller, with neither being under duress to buy or sell.

Non-farm land value $4,029
Non-farm building value + $48,582
Farm land value + $792
Farm building value + $1,359
Total market value = $54,762

Assessed Values

A property's assessed value represents a part of its market value. It is the foundation upon which taxing authorities determine the amount of real estate taxes to be paid. Currently, in Illinois, properties are assessed at 1/3 (or 33%) of their market values, with the exception of Cook County, and 38% for commercial property. The assessment process takes place on an annual basis, while a General Reassessment is required every four years in order to maintain or increase assessment uniformity. If assessed values are too low, the county will apply a County Equalizer to all assessments in the jurisdiction in order to increase them, so that they will represent a real one-third of the fair market value.

Non-farm land assessed value $1,343
Non-farm building assessed value + $16,194
Farm land assessed value + $264
Farm building assessed value + $453
Assessed value = $18,254
