To the Editor:
I would like to applaud the McHenry Township team for its performance. Many circumstances driving property values down resulted in decreased tax revenue, adding to the Illinois deficit mess.
Carol Perschke is the hands-on authority concerning real-estate value assessments. Crafting the fair system on the local level for appealing assessments and managing a very capable staff, she effectively implements all of the aspects of the assessor mission.
Although Illinois’ equalization rates applied to the assessed values determine the property taxes we pay, without a willing, proactive, consumer-oriented assessor, the net property-tax result could be staggering in many circumstances.
I don’t farm for appeal work and don’t need to court the assessor, but I have interacted professionally with Perschke for myself and clients on property evaluations. She transcends beyond the Realtor approach, bringing greater expertise and management experience to the office. She is the smarter choice.
