Sample Property Tax Report for a Mchenry 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.

Market Value

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.

Market value (estimated) = $212,130
Assessed Value

Assessment is the basis upon which taxing authorities tax a property. Real property in Illinois is generally assessed at 1/3 of its market value.

Non farm land assessed value $24,231
Non farm building assessed value + $46,479
Assessed value = $70,710
Exemptions And Taxable Value

Exemptions are available in McHenry County, which may lower the property's tax bill. These are deducted from the property's assessed value. The amount obtained is multiplied by the tax equalization factor to give the property's taxable value.

Unfortunately, no data regarding the exact exemption or exclusion values were provided to us.

Tax Equalization Factor

The Illinois Department of Revenue is required by law to calculate a tax equalization factor, often called the multiplier, to achieve uniform property assessment throughout the state. Once the Department has certified the final equalization factor, the County Clerk applies the factor to the assessed value determined by the Assessor and modified by the Board of Review. The new value is called equalized assessed value (EAV) and farm land and building assessed value may be added to give the property's taxable value.
Right now the equalization factor for McHenry County is 1.

For this property, no farm values are added, so the equalized assessed value is equal to the taxable value.

Equalized assessed value = $70,710
Property Tax

Property tax is obtained by multiplying the final taxable value by the total tax rate applicable to it and is an estimate of what an owner not benefiting from any exemptions would pay.
Actual taxes might differ from the figures displayed here due to various abatement and financial assistance programs.
