NOTICE TO WILLIAMSON COUNTY TAX PAYERS
2013 SUPERVISOR OF ASSESSMENTS CHANGES
FOR WILLIAMSON COUNTY
The following is a complete list of all changes to Real Estate Assessments for Williamson County, Illinois for the Assessment year 2013.
The Assessment values herein shown are subject to Revision by the Board of Review and Equalization by the Department of Revenue through Section 17-5 of the Property Tax Code
(35 ILCS 200/17-5).This provides that the Department of Revenue shall lower or raise the total assessed value of property in any county in order that property will be assessed at 1/3 of its fair cash value.
This publication is made to comply with Section 12-10 of the Property Tax Code (35 ILCS 200/12-10) (2002), as amended, and serves as notice to property owners of the assessed value fixed on their property.
Median Level of Assessment- 32.74 %
Your property is to be assessed at the above median level of assessment for the assessment district. You may check the accuracy of your assessment by the following procedure. Divide your assessment by the median level of assessment. The resulting value should equal the estimated fair cash value of your property. If the resulting value is greater than the estimated fair cash value of your property, you may be over-assessed. You may appeal your assessment to the Williamson County Board of Review.
Assessment complaints may be filed with the Board of Review from this date to 30 days after publication of the assessment list in accordance with Section 16-55 of the Property Tax Code
(35 ILCS 200/16-55)(2002), as amended.
Public Act 84-1275 (SB 415) limits the change in the certified farmland values for each PI to 10% of the previous years EAV. The raw 2012 EAV’s for all PI’s increased by 10% or more than 10% from the previous year: therefore all values certified have been subjected to the limitations of PA 84-1275.
The percentage factor necessary to adjust farmland in Williamson County for 2012 with regard to the 10% limitation is 1.1000.

Supervisor of Assessments
The Supervisor of Assessments is Now Taking Applications for the Following Exemptions:
Owner Occupied Exemption
To qualify you must have ownership in and occupy the property as of January 1 of the assessment year. To qualify for a new construction, the residence must be pro-rated and goes from the date of occupancy and interest. Proof of ownership is required. Age is not a factor for this exemption.
To qualify you must be 65 years of age during the assessment year, and you must have ownership in and occupy the property as your principle residence. Proof of ownership and age is required.
Senior Citizen Assessment Freeze Homestead Exemption
To qualify you must be 65 years of age during the assessment year and you must have ownership in and occupied the property as of January 1 of the prior assessment year and the entire household income cannot exceed $55,000.
Homestead Improvement Exemption
To qualify, the property must be owner-occupied and used exclusively for residential purposes. Any proposed increase in the assessed value must be attributable solely to an added improvement to an existing structure not to exceed $75,000. The Homestead Improvement Exemption must be applied for prior to October 7 of the assessment year or within 30 days of the publication of the Supervisor of Assessments changes, whichever is later.
Natural Disaster Homestead Exemption
The Natural Disaster Homestead Exemption is an exemption on homestead property for a rebuilt residential structure following a natural disaster occurring in the taxable year 2012 or any taxable year thereafter. The amount of the exemption is the reduction in equalized assessed value (EAV) of the residence in the first taxable year for which the taxpayer applies for an exemption minus the equalized assessed value of the residence for the taxable year prior to the taxable year in which the natural disaster occurred. The exemption continues at the same amount until the taxable year in which the property is sold or transferred.
Natural disaster means an occurrence of widespread or severe damage or loss of property resulting from any catastrophic cause including but not limited to fire, flood, earthquake, wind, storm, or extended period of severe inclement weather. In the case of a residential structure affected by flooding, the structure shall not be eligible for an exemption unless it is located within a local jurisdiction which is participating in the National Flood Insurance Program. A proclamation of disaster by the President of the United States or the Governor of the State of Illinois is not a prerequisite to the classification of an occurrence as a natural disaster.
To be eligible for this exemption,
• You must own or have a legal or equitable interest in the property on which a single family residence is occupied as your principal residence during the assessment year;
• You must be liable for payment of the real estate taxes;
• The residential structure must be rebuilt within 2 years after the date of the natural disaster, and
• The square footage of the rebuilt residential structure may not be more than 110 percent of the square footage of the original residential structure as it existed immediately prior to the natural disaster.
Section 10-25 Demonstration Model Homes
Beginning January 1, 1987, the assessed value of any tract or lot of real property, upon which construction of a single family dwelling to which this Section is applicable has been initiated or completed after December 29, 1986, while such dwelling is not occupied as a dwelling but is used as a display or demonstration model home for prospective buyers or such dwelling or of similar homes to be built on other tracts or lots, shall be the same as the assessed value of such tract or lot prior to construction of such dwelling and prior to any change in the zoning classification of such tract or lot prior to construction of such dwelling. The application of the Section shall not be affected if the display or demonstration model home contains home furnishings, appliances, offices, and office equipment to further sale activities. The Section shall not be applicable if the dwelling is situated is sold or leased for use other than as a display or demonstration model home. No tract or lot of real property shall be eligible for calculation of its assessed value pursuant to this Section for more than a 10-year period. If the valuation allowed pursuant to this Section becomes inapplicable, the owner shall within 60 days file with the county assessor, or supervisor of assessments, as the case may be, a certificate giving notice of such inapplicability within 60 days thereafter.
Under this Act, no corporation, individual, sole proprietor or partnership may have more than a total of 3 model homes at the same time within a 3 mile radius subject to the assessment provisions of this Section. The center point of each radius shall be the display or demonstration model that has been used as such for the longest period of time. The person liable for taxes on property eligible for assessment as provided in the Section shall file a verified application with the supervisor of assessment or county assessor, as the case may be, on or before December 31 of each assessment year for which that assessment is desired. Failure to make a timely filing in any assessment year constitutes a waiver of the right to claim the benefit of this Section for that assessment year according to Section 10-25 of the Property Tax Code (35 ILCS 200/10-25)(2002).
