Interim Market Update


In 2019, the Village will be working with our Assessor, Associated Appraisal Consultants, to complete an Interim Marker Update revaluation of all properties in the Village. The purpose of this work is to update all assessed values to reflect current market conditions. The last revaluation occurred in 2012. Unlike previous revaluations, the Interim Market Update does not involve the assessor physically inspecting the majority of properties in the Village. Rather, the assessor will be using existing property records as a basis for the physical attributes of each property and assessments will be updated to reflect current market conditions. The results of this work will be the assessed values of all taxable properties in the Village will be updated to reflect current market conditions at 100% market value.

For more information on this process, please view the short video below which will describe the process in more detail.
The Village encourages residents to watch their mailboxes for a Notice of Assessment which we estimate will be distributed during the month of July. This notice will come from Associated Appraisal Consultants directly to all property owners and will be mailed after property reviews are complete. The notice will provide you information on new assessed values. Property owners will have an opportunity to discuss the assessed values with an Associated Appraisal representative at the Open Book session.  After the Open Book session, property owners will have the opportunity to appeal an assessment to the Board of Review.  The Notices of Assessment will contain the dates and times of the Open Book and Board of Review meetings.
