The Supervisor of Assessments is proud to announce the launch of our NEW & IMPROVED  Website!


The website still contains all the helpful content as before, but it has a fresh, updated look and is easier to navigate for taxpayers. The Supervisor of Assessments continues to prioritize keeping the office technologically advanced, so that we may offer the best tools possible to taxpayers looking for information.


Another upcoming update from the Supervisor of Assessments office is the debut of the new appeal portal website. The Board of Review will be utilizing an improved portal site so that taxpayers, attorneys, and intervenors may submit and view evidence at borappeals.willcountysoa.com.
The Board of Review Appeal Portal Website opens to the public on Wednesday, August 12, 2020.

In response to COVID-19, Governor Pritzker signed Public Act 101-635 into law on Friday, June 5, 2020.

NO RENEWAL FORMS will be sent for the 2020 Levy year. ALL eligible Seniors and Disabled persons or Disabled veterans who received exemptions for the 2019 Levy year will automatically receive the same exemptions for the 2020 Levy year, payable in 2021. All exemptions will be processed WITHOUT re-application.

Supervisor of Assessments Office

CURRENT WORK PLAN

Please call if you need an appointment


The Will County Supervisor of Assessments office in an effort to coordinate with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention by minimizing contact to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus is reducing its operation to phone and e-mail, and will accept scheduled in-person appointments. In the instances where a taxpayer is in the Will County Office Building with questions for the Supervisor of Assessments Office, the taxpayer has been and will continue to be assisted accordingly.


Again, the Supervisor of Assessments Office desires to set the precedent to encourage taxpayers to utilize their phone and email to contact our office unless an appointment is absolutely necessary. The taxpayer must call the Supervisor of Assessments Office to make an appointment. This is in an effort to ensure our staff can explain to the taxpayer what documents are necessary to provide at the appointment for completion of their application.


An informational postcard was mailed on June 30, 2020 to each taxpayer receiving an annually renewed exemption (Disabled, Disabled Veteran, and Senior Citizen Assessment Freeze) regarding newly signed legislation, Public Act 101-635, which allowed all approved 2019 exemptions to roll over for 2020.


Please call our office at (815) 740-4648 or utilize our website's Contact Us page to send our office a message with any questions, concerns, or to request to schedule an appointment for an in-person meeting with a staff member. Once again, an appointment will be necessary regarding in-person business with the Supervisor of Assessments Office. Our staff is prepared to answer all taxpayers’ questions and concerns.


Feel free to check back on our website and follow our social media accounts located at the bottom of this page (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn) for future updates as they become available.


PLEASE CONTACT your Local Township Assessor offices to obtain each Assessor's Hours and Status of Operation.

The Will County Supervisor of Assessments Office governs every aspect of the assessment process, acting as a central resource for its county's residents. We believe that our primary responsibility is to the taxpayers, and we are committed to ensure that all county residents receive fair and equitable assessments. We are also dedicated to making sure that eligible taxpayers are receiving the beneficial exemptions they are entitled to; all with the utmost courteous and respectful service. The Supervisor of Assessments Office is also committed to promoting taxpayers education and involvement in the assessment process through open discussion forums, informational meetings, and community outreach endeavors. The valuations for 2019 are for the assessment year of 2019, payable in 2020. This means that the assessment you are looking at is for this year's upcoming tax bill. The tax rates for this year have not been established yet. The Supervisor of Assessments does not establish tax rates (tax rates are established by local taxing bodies). However, you can search our website for the most current assessments using our Property Search Portal, where you can conduct property searches by PIN, property address, and more.
