Assessments of property, other than farm land and coal, are required by law to be assessed at 33-1/3% of fair market value.  Final Equalized Assessed Value – Exemptions = Taxable Assessment.  Taxable Assessment x Current Tax Rate = Total Tax Bill

The following equalization factors have been applied to all non-farm land and buildings, and also includes farm home site and farm dwelling, per 35 ILCS 200/9-210, to bring them to the statutorily required 3 year median level of 33.33%:

You may check the accuracy of your assessment by dividing your assessment by the median level of assessment.  If the resulting value is greater than the estimated fair cash value of your property, you may be over-assessed.  Pursuant to 35 ILCS 200/10-115, the farmland assessment for the 2023 assessment year will increase by 10% of the preceding year’s median cropped soil productivity index 111 as certified by the Illinois Department of Revenue with data provided by the Farmland Assessment Technical Advisory Board resulting in a $42.61 per acre increase for each soil productivity index.  Property owners in these townships may file an appeal on their assessment to the Christian County Board of Review by filling out a complaint form in the Supervisor of Assessments office within 30 days of the date of this publication.  The address of the Supervisor of assessments office is 101 S. Main, Taylorville, IL 62568, and the phone number is (217) 824-5900.  The assessment, minus exemptions, is multiplied by your local tax rate resulting in the amount of property taxes. Your property may be eligible for homestead exemptions, which can reduce your property’s taxable assessment.  For more information on homestead exemptions, call (217) 824-5900 or visit
