Join the McLean County Supervisor of Assessments Timothy Jorczak, McLean County Treasurer Rebecca McNeil, and McLean County Clerk Kathy Michael for an informational session regarding how property taxes are assessed. Topics include value changes, deductions, as well as how tax bills are levied and calculated.
BLOOMINGTON – (July 26, 2022) The McLean County Supervisor of Assessments has begun publishing assessed value changes and township equalization factors for the 2022 assessment year, McLean County Chief County Assessment Officer Timothy Jorczak announced today. Taxpayers in certain townships will begin receiving notices in the mail as early as this week, with the remainder of the county being rolled out in phases over the course of the next several weeks.
Providing notice of values, effective for property taxes payable in 2023, is the first step in the property tax cycle. Taxpayers have thirty days from the date of publication to file a complaint with the McLean County Board of Review. New this year, the office will be conducting public information sessions at different locations across the county to help inform taxpayers about these notices and educate the public about the details of the assessment process.
“We’ve all seen the rapid growth of the real estate market here in McLean County over the few years, and taxpayers should expect that this growth will be reflected in their assessment,” Jorczak said. “The purpose of these sessions is to help educate the public on exactly how and why these changes are made, how they relate to the final tax bill, and what they can do if they feel the assessment does not reflect the market value of their property.”
Taxpayers are invited to come and learn about how property values are developed, how and why the equalization process is done, and how to file a complaint before the county Board of Review, as well as learn about some of the deductions that may be available. Representatives from the township offices, as well as representatives from the offices of the McLean County Treasurer Rebecca McNeil and McLean County Clerk Kathy Michael, will also be on hand to help answer questions.
The first session will be held on Tuesday, August 9, 2022, at 5:30 P.M. at the Allin Township Community Building at 203 North Blackstone Avenue in Stanford. The second will be at Davis Lodge on Lake Bloomington on Friday, August 12, at 5:30 P.M. Additional sessions will be announced as townships are published.
