There are two major components of the tax system: taxation and valuation. Our office establishes the assessed value of parcels of property in the township. Taxing authorities such as school districts and municipalities are responsible for the second major component of the tax system: Taxation. They levy (impose) taxes against the property values established by the assessor. Our staff will be happy to discuss concerns or questions you may have about the tax system.
Our office maintains a research area for your convenience where you may review all public documents, including plat maps, sales documents and property record cards on our two public computers using Lake County's webpage.
