OPEN BOOK & BOARD OF REVIEW
OPEN BOOK is scheduled on April 30, 2019 from 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. in the Village Office at 116 S. Military Rd., Stockbridge. The purpose of Open Book is to give residents that may have questions or concerns regarding their, real or personal property assessments, a chance to talk one on one with the Village’s assessor.
BOARD OF REVIEW is scheduled on May 20, 2019 from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. in the Village Office.
The purpose of the Board of Review is to give the residents that still object to their real or personal property assessment an opportunity to appeal to the Board of Review. The Board of Review is a quasi-judicial (court like) body that has the following authority:
- BOR are legally bound to accept the assessor’s assessment as correct unless there is evidence that proves the assessment to be incorrect.
- BOR are not to assess property. Their duty is to hear sworn, oral testimony about assessed values and based solely on that testimony to decide if an individual has proven the assessment to be incorrect.
- BOR do not have the authority to exempt or not exempt property from taxation.
The first step you need to take is to attend the Open Book with the Assessor. If you still object to the assessment, you will need to complete and file an objection form with the Village Clerk, prior to Board of Review. You must then attend the Board of Review to give verbal testimony to your objection.
