Property tax assessment for the majority of DeKalb County will be published in Wednesday's edition of the Daily Chronicle.
The assessments for Sycamore and Sandwich townships were published Sept. 18, but the assessments for all other townships will be in Wednesday's newspaper. Property owners have 30 days from the publish date to appeal the assessed property value.
To determine if your assessment is accurate, the first step is to call your local township assessor, Chief County Assessment Officer Robin Brunschon said. This person will work with you to make sure the information about your property is correct and can show you similar properties in your neighborhood.
If the township assessor declines to change the assessment, the next step is to file an appeal with the Board of Review and Appeals. Forms should be mailed to the DeKalb County Assessment Office at 110 E. Sycamore St., Sycamore, IL 60178.
The form can be found on the county's website at www.dekalbcounty.org. From the website, click on A-Z Index, Assessment Office, and Board of Review & Appeals. Bring up the Appeal Packet, select the type of appeal, then print and complete the form. Forms are also available inside the office.
