DuPage Township is a WILL COUNTY office
SENIORS: New assessments freeze forms will be mailed at beginning of April 2015 if you have previously filed in 2014. If you have not filed last year or never qualified before, please come into the office with your income papers from 2014, after April 1, and we will be able to assist you. You must be 65 or older, lived in your home more than 2 January 1st, and total household income must be below $55,000. You can visit our “exemption” tab to read more about this. Personnel from Will County will be at DuPage Township Office on April 7, 2015 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. and June 9, 2015 from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. to also help in filing these forms.
2014 TAX BILLS (payable in 2015): The bills will be mailed from Will County on May 1, 2015. They are due in two installments (only one bill is mailed). Due dates are June 1, 2015 and September 1, 2015.
Please check your tax bill for any missing exemptions. They are explained on the back of your tax bill. If there are missing exemptions, please call or come in to our office as soon as possible to have it looked over. If you are not sure what you qualify for, please visit our “exemption” tab to see what is available. If you see no dollar amount in the senior freeze and you applied, please look at your assessments first. If your assessment is lower than the amount you were frozen at, there will be no adjustments made in that line item.
There are two separate factors that make up your tax bill; the tax rates and assessments. The tax rate is determined by taxing bodies in the area. They are listed on the tax bill. If you are concerned with the rate you are paying, please contact your taxing bodies. Please see our tab “Taxing District Info” for name and contact information. Budgets are set in the Fall and tax payers are encouraged to attend those meetings, which set the rates you pay.
The Assessor’s Office is responsible for assessing every property. When tax bills are mailed, it is not the time to appeal your assessment. Assessments for this tax cycle were finalized last September 2014. Assessments cannot be changed at this point. The new 2015 assessments will be sent out August 2015 and everyone should receive a notice because it is a Quad Assessment Year.
If you feel you would like your assessment reviewed further for 2015, please click on tab Assessment Review or please call our office and we will instruct you how to proceed. Always note the deadlines on the notices for appealing. You DO NOT need a lawyer, tax consultant, or to pay a fee to have your assessments reviewed. This is what we do and we are here to help you understand the process.
As always, if you have any further questions please feel free to call this office and anyone of the staff will be able to answer your questions.
John Randall, Assessor
