With approximately 150,000 very diverse parcels of land throughout St. Clair County, there is a chance that property owners may find it necessary to appeal the property tax assessment (value).
  
The St. Clair County Board of Review consists of three elected members who have the power to hear and decide taxpayer complaints on the value or exempt status of property. That includes residential, commercial, industrial and condominium property as well as vacant land.

Assessment
If you feel that the assessed value of your property is out of line in comparison with similar properties in your neighborhood, you are encouraged to inquire. The first step is an informal discussion and review with a representative in the County Assessor’s office. While most cases are resolved at this level, you may also file an appeal to request a hearing with the Board of Review.

Appeals
Once you have formally filed an appeal with the Board of Review, you will be notified in writing of your scheduled appointment. At that time, you will be given the opportunity to appear before the Board to protest you assessment and present evidence.

Types of Evidence
You are required to bring proper documentation/evidence to support your request for a reduction. The following items can be presented as evidence:
  1. An exterior picture of your home or business and pictures of at least three (3) similar properties (in you neighborhood) that are comparable to yours. 
  2. A copy of your Property Record Card and your comparable PRCs indicating that another assessment is lower than yours. (Copies of the Property Record Cards can be obtained from the Assessor’s office) or
  3. A copy of a recent appraisal report, sales contract, settlement statement or deed if available.

(If you need assistance with gathering evidence, please visit the Assessor’s office prior to your scheduled hearing date).


The Board of Review will hear your case, review your evidence, and rule on your appeal. You will be notified in writing of the decision.
