Sample Property Tax Report for a Sangamon 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.

Non farm land value $31,356
Non farm building value + $105,876
Market value = $137,232
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; however, its agricultural economic value may be substituted if it has been used for farmland for the previous two years.

Non farm land assessed value $10,452
Non farm building assessed value + $35,292
Assessed value = $45,744
Exemptions And Taxable Value

Exemptions are available in Sangamon County, which may lower the property's tax bill. These are deducted from the property's equalized assessed value to give the property's taxable value.

Assessed value $45,744
Exemption value - $6,000
Taxable value = $39,744
Property Tax

Property tax is calculated by multiplying the taxable value with the corresponding tax rates.
Current tax represents the amount the present owner pays including exemptions.
Base tax is an estimate of what an owner not benefiting from any exemptions would pay.
