  • Assessor Frequently Asked Questions | Jersey County Government
    homeowner exemptions are deducted I did not live in my home for all of the tax year so why am I paying the entire tax bill Please refer to your closing papers Typically at a closing you will be given a proportionate allowance credit for the months you didn t have ownership of the property and this amount to be used by the new owner when the property tax bill comes due My calculations for the square footage on my home are different than what the Assessor s Office has listed What should I do We use the outside perimeter of the home to calculate the square footage Your assessment is based upon this Your square footage calculation is most likely based on the inside square footage I have over 5 acres of vacant wooded acreage is there any discount available on my assessment for that land Yes there are preferred assessment programs that you may qualify for in regards to wooded acreage Please read the Conservation Stewardship and Forestry Management Programs Text PDF to learn more Why did my property value increase when all I hear on the news is that property values are dropping While it is true that nationwide many areas are experiencing severe drops in property values Jersey County values have remained stable This is partially due to over inflated property values in some parts of the country even within Illinois that was not experienced here in Jersey County Additionally when determining the equalization factor the Board of Review and the Illinois Department of Revenue are using assessment values from three previous years not the current year For example the 2008 payable 2009 equalization factor averaged 2005 2006 and 2007 assessment to sales data What is a multiplier Non farm property is by law supposed to be assessed at one third of its market value However due to differences in assessing methods and changes in the real estate market from year to year assessed values for a jurisdiction do not always meet this statutory requirement When overall assessments in a jurisdiction are determined to be above or below the statutory level based on annual sales ratio studies of actual sale prices compared to assessed values of properties a multiplier factor is applied to all non farm assessments in that jurisdiction The result is that assessments overall in that jurisdiction are now at the statutory level and the taxing districts that generate property tax revenue from those assessments now have the proper base on which to levy Why do I need to sign my Homestead Exemption each year I m not getting any younger This is done to keep record that the person does still own the home and live there They may move in with someone and be renting the home to another party How are mobile homes taxed Mobile home or manufactured home taxed under the Mobile Home Local Services Tax or as it is called the Privileged tax on January 1 2011 continues to
