posted in: Announcements | 0


2019 Property Quadrennial

What:  The Apple River & Thompson Multi-Township Assessor will be out canvassing each property in the Township to take photos and outside measurements of new structures and land improvements in order to verify/update records.

When:   April 2018 – December 2018 or until work is completed (2019 is your Quadrennial)

Where:  All property located within the Apple River & Thompson Townships

Who:  There will be a single person or a two person team out in the area from April –December (or later)

Why:  It is required by the State of Illinois that every four years your property is visited and revalued based on the three prior years of sales. (2018/2017/2016).

Please note:

  • The assessing team does NOT need to enter your home; they will knock on your door and review the property card with you to make sure all the information is accurate or if changes need to be made.  It is helpful if they can enter the rear yard for accuracy of measurements and discovery.
  • If they are not able to access your property or are denied access to your property the assessor will leave and estimate what they believe the current status of the property is.
  • The assessing team will be taking pictures of the front and back of your home.
  • Any improvements (deck, patio, garages, etc) discovered will be added to your assessment. Likewise, any improvements on the record card that are no longer on the property will be removed from your assessment.

Remember we are just doing our job; collecting data and making sure your property record card is accurate.  We do not control your tax bill, please be courteous.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your Assessor:
Laura Edmonds
815.821.3544 (Mon-Fri 6pm-8pm)

Thank you for your cooperation!
