Algonquin Property Tax Rate Decreases by Five Percent

The Village of Algonquin has received its final tax rate for the taxes payable by property owners in 2019 that indicates that tax rates for the Village will drop 5.4 percent to $0.588 for every $1,000 in equalized assessed valuation (EAV).  As property tax bills are sent out to property owners in the upcoming weeks, the Village is encouraging residents to take an extra close look at their bills.

The Village of Algonquin’s property tax rate continues to rank among the lowest for a municipality in the regional area.  The Village receives approximately $0.06 of every $1.00 paid in property taxes, or six percent of a property owner’s overall tax bill, with the remainder being paid to other taxing bodies such as schools, counties, and other special districts.

“Easing the tax burden to our residents is a top priority for our Village Board,” said Village President John Schmitt.  “By taking innovative approaches to controlling our operating costs while making sound investments in economic development and infrastructure, we are able to achieve this goal in a sustainable manner.”

In November 2018, the Algonquin Village Board unanimously approved freezing the current property tax levy at $5.6 million.  This property tax levy is the lowest levy for the Village of Algonquin since 2008.  Additionally, new construction and economic development in the community helped the Village’s EAV increase 5.7 percent to $952 million, the highest since 2011.  The combination of both factors help Village residents with a lower tax burden locally.

Residents looking for more information on their tax bills are encourage to visit either the Kane County or McHenry County Treasurer’s website, based on their household location.
