Important Message from Fremont Assessor Joe Herchenbach
August 6, 2020 Fremont Township Property Assessment Notices In The Mail
Fremont Residents Only Have Until September 8, 2020 to Appeal Their Assessment.
Lake County will be mailing property owners in Fremont Township their “blue cards” with the assessed values of their homes on August 6th.
Please review yours promptly and If you find an inaccuracy on the blue card, call my office at 847 223-2846 so that we can discuss the issue. As your local assessor, I want to work with you if there are inaccuracies and save you the inconvenience and expense of hiring an attorney to file an appeal.
If you have evidence that you feel proves you are over assessed, please call our office at 847-223-2846. If we remedy your concerns at our Fremont Township Assessor’s office, there will be no need to appeal.
Make sure you are receiving all the exemptions you are entitled to! The General Homestead exemption is for a primary residence. The Senior Homestead Exemption is for homeowners 65 and older on a primary residence. These exemptions can represent significant savings.
Please take this as a reminder that you only have a 30-day window to appeal your assessment.
Fremont Township homeowners only have until September 8th to appeal, so come to us first. Many people wait until they receive their property tax bill to contest the assessment, but that is too late.
Due to COVID we are encouraging discussion by phone or email, or can arrange to speak one-on-one by appointment only (masks are required). Our staff is here to assist you in person by appointment. Please call first at 847 223-2846. In order to meet the CDC guildelines we are limiting the number of people in our office at one time.
Sincerely, Joe Herchenbach Fremont Township Assessor Fremont Township
