Board of Review
The Coles County Board of Review is a three member board whose primary duty is to review and decide upon real-property assessment complaints. In addition to reviewing assessment complaints, the Board of Review is also charged with the review of:
- Homestead Exemptions
- Property Tax Exemption Applications
- Corrections to the Assessment Roll
- Omitted Property
The Board of Review begins its annual session each year on the first Monday in June and continues until all business before the Board is completed. The Supervisor of Assessments Office assists the Board of Review during their annual session.
Upon convening for the year, Illinois statutes require that all Boards of Review publish their Rules and Procedures. This defines how the complaint process will be handled, what evidence should be submitted, and how other business will be handled before the Board. Below is a link to their 2011 Rules and Procedures for review.2012 BOR Rules & Procedures
