About the Board of Review
By Illinois State Statute, the County Board appoints three citizens of the County to be the Board of Review. The Chief County Assessment Officer serves as their clerk.
The Board of Review hears assessment complaints, assesses omitted property, and makes recommendations on non-homestead exemptions before the applications are mailed to the Illinois Department of Revenue. Property and local taxing districts may appeal unfair assessments to the Board of Review.
If the complainant is not satisfied with the board's decision, they can appeal the decision to the Illinois Property Tax Appeal Board.
