The office of the Assessor is the only elected position that has statutory, pre-election requirements. Candidates for Assessor must obtain the Certified Illinois Assessing Officer designation from the Illinois Property Assessment Institute. The township assessor is essentially an appraiser. The assessor’s responsibilities include the assessment / appraisal of all taxable property within the township.
The Assessor must analyze recent arms length sales for three years and perform sales ratio studies for all properties to determine which areas require reassessment and must also analyze the fairness of assessments. For commercial properties the Assessor must also examine income, rents and vacancies. The assessor “certifies” changes to the Supervisor of Assessments Office, responds to complaints about assessments, values new construction and assists in / or determines homestead, model home, home improvement, builder and open space exemptions.
The Assessor determines the market value of all taxable property, which is then assessed at 33 1/3% of that value. The purpose of the assessment is to equitably apportion the tax burden as created by taxing districts: schools, municipalities, park districts, counties and townships. Assessors do not levy, collect or distribute tax revenues.
