Lake Villa Township 2022 Assessments Published

On August 18, 2022 Assessment Notices, also known as the “Blue Card”, will be mailed to the taxpayers of Lake Villa Township. It is very important to review the values and contact my office with any questions or concerns as soon as possible.

The 30 day appeal deadline to file a formal appeal to the Lake County Board of Review will be September 19. After that deadline, my office cannot make changes to the valuation unless there is a factual error such as a data entry error.

Contact the Assessor’s Office

Homeowners are strongly encouraged to submit evidence and discuss the assessed value with my office first. Please feel free to contact my office with any questions you may have regarding your assessment. My staff and I are happy to discuss and review your assessment with you. We can evaluate the evidence, and if warranted, make a change to your assessment without necessitating further appeal. It is also advisable to contact my office as soon as possible; we expect to be very busy.

Application of the Township Equalization Factor

The 2022 Lake Villa Township Equalization Factor is 1.0765.  All properties within the Township increased equally by 7.65%.  This does not mean your taxes will increase by 7.65%. Since all assessments in Lake Villa Township will receive the same increase, your share of the property tax burden will not adversely increase.  Any change in your tax bill is determined by spending of the taxing bodies. If the taxing bodies increase spending, then taxes go up.  If they decrease spending, taxes go down.

Covid-19 Procedures

The Lake Villa Township Assessor’s Office is to the public.  We will be staffed during normal business hours to assist residents regarding assessment, real estate tax, and exemption questions.

To limit your potential exposure, it is strongly recommended to phone our office or send an email.  Email can be an efficient method to ask questions and submit evidence.

New procedures to file an on-line appeal

Starting in 2019, all property assessment appeals must be submitted electronically. Property owners can appeal their assessment on their own to the Lake County Board of Review. No attorney is required for a residential appeal. Appeals can be completed in a few minutes by using the SmartFile E-Filing Portal.   Please visit the lake Villa Assessor website or the Lake County website for instructions and the on-line application.
