From the Assessor

I’m excited to offer the information on this website as a way to help educate and share information with you. It is my hope that this website, in conjunction with our Facebook and Twitter accounts, will help keep you connected to our office. I want you to know that we are here to help you and we are your local resource, right here in Lake Zurich. We will work with you to help you understand the assessment and appeal process and will assist you with exemptions.

A big goal of mine is to reach out into the community and help educate you, the taxpayer. We are offering various outreach sessions, forums, and speaking engagements through various organizations to help me reach this goal. I’ve always felt that an educated taxpayer is extremely important as the assessment process can be quite complex.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. I would also appreciate your feedback. Feel free to e-mail me any time at jbarrington@elaassessor.org.
