Functions of The Board of Review:
The function of the Board of Review is the final local review of the assessments within their jurisdiction.  Other changes of the Board of Review include but not limited to:

  • Hear complaints concerning real estate assessments and rendering decisions regarding values of real property.
  • Defend decisions to the Illinois Property Tax Appeal Board
  • Determine or recommend eligibility for certain exemptions.
  • Apply equalization factors.  

Note: The Mercer County CCAO has published and sent YR 2023 notice to taxpayers (obtain information from the assessment tab) farmland notice on October 18, 2023, and the deadline to file an appeal with the Board of Review is 30 days after publication.  Publication of the change of assessment notice to taxpayer was published in the Aledo Times Record.  Appeal forms and rules are available at the Mercer County Supervisor of Assessments Office, the Mercer County Board of Review Office, or click the links below. 
Disclaimer: On the original preamble that was published on 10/18/2023 an error was found stating 
"Assessments have decreased by the percentage listed in this publication for each individual township." This is incorrect. Assessments have increased by the percentage 1.0128. Due to this error, we have extended the appeal deadline 2 weeks. The appeal deadline is now December 4,2023.
