The deadline to file property tax appeals for Grafton Township is currently anticipated to be mid to late November.
You can experience real savings over the next four years by appealing.
If you live in the greater Crystal Lake area, you can expect to pay about 3.5% per year of your home’s fair market value in property taxes each year. Let’s suppose you have a house that is assessed at $300,000 but that actually is only worth $270,000. Here is how much money you can save:
Current tax bill: $300,000 x 3.5% = $10,500 in taxes per year
Tax bill after appeal: $270,000 x 3.5% = $9,450 in taxes per year
Yearly savings of $1,050.
