The following came from a friend of McHenry County Blog in Richmond:
Of course, Richmond Township is not the only township setting the amount of taxes it will collect next year.
Taxpayers who do not want that part of their bill to increase by the 1.7% allowed under the Property Tax Cap should attend their next local township meeting and ask that next year’s levy be no more than this year’s “extension.”
The “extension” is the amount the County Clerk told the County Treasurer to collect in taxes this year.
If more than that is requested, odds are good tax bills for a township will increase next year.
