MADISON COUNTY BOARD OF REVIEW
With the uncertainty of the Pandemic, we encourage you to waive your right to an oral hearing. This is accomplished by checking the box on line 4 of the appeal form for the residential appeals. Farm appeals can also waive the right to an oral hearing by checking the box at the top of the appeal. We will still consider your appeal the same exact way as if you were coming into the office for a hearing. If you do not waive the hearing, keep in mind it may have to be held remotely via telephone, depending on the situation of the pandemic. Commercial and Industrial appeal hearings may also be held via phone.
WE ARE AVAILABLE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE BY CALLING 618-692-6210. THE PUBLIC IS ASKED TO CALL BEFORE VISITING THE OFFICE. IF YOU MUST VISIT THE OFFICE, WE PLEASE ASK THAT YOU WEAR A FACE MASK.
WE HAVE WAIVED THE NEED FOR EXEMPTIONS TO BE NOTORIZED AT THIS TIME.
THANK YOU AND STAY SAFE!
SUSAN T. ROLENS, CHAIR
The Board of Review (BOR) is a three-member board appointed by the County Board Chairman with the advice and consent of the County board. It is the final assessment and equalization authority for all property taxing purposes at the County level. The BOR is governed by the Illinois Compiled Statues and its own rules.
The BOR is charged with the duty of ensuring that all property tax assessments in the County are full, fair, and equitable. It may raise or lower any assessment under its jurisdiction, either on its own motion or upon written complaint by the owner/taxpayer. Written complaints must be filed with in thirty days of the publication of the new assessment list by the Chief County Assessment Officer. Any written decision of the BOR may be appealed to the Illinois Property Tax Appeal Board (PTAB). The BOR must prepare and defend its actions before PTAB in all appeals filed from Madison County. The BOR may also assist the State's Attorney's Office in resolution of tax objection cases.
The BOR must also process and forward all applications for property tax exemptions to the Illinois Department of Revenue, process all applications for the Senior Citizen Assessment Freeze Homestead Exemption, process all Home Improvement Exemption applications, correct names and legal descriptions, add omitted properties to the tax rolls, compile and certify to the County Clerk a list of all properties entitled to an Enterprise Zone abatement and remove any pollution control facilities from the tax rolls after certification by the State of Illinois.
As the final equalization authority, the BOR must calculate tentative intra county equalization factors (township multipliers), publish the tentative multipliers and hold a public hearing before adopting the final township multipliers. Written notice of the change due to the multiplier is mailed to the taxpayer. Any excessive increase due to application of the multiplier may be appealed to the PTAB with in 30 days of the date of the postmark on the notice.
