What is the “Supervisor of Assessments Equalized Assessed Value?"

The state property tax code requires that the Supervisor of Assessments apply an equalization factor to all property within a township (except for farmland or farm buildings) to make assessment levels uniform among Whiteside County’s 22 townships. This factor can increase the valuation, decrease the valuation, or leave it unchanged. The “Supervisor of Assessments Equalized Assessed Value” is your property’s valuation after equalization is applied. Your tax bill is calculated by applying a tax rate to this equalized value.
