Website for Property Tax Comparisons

WINNEBAGO COUNTY (WIFR) – Winnebago County is giving us a way to trim down our taxes.

The county revealed a new single family sales locator tool on the WINGIS website. The tool assists people with making decisions regarding the filing of property tax assessment complaints. The website gives taxpayers a better option to loo up sales activity and allows them to see what similar properties are paying in taxes.

The deadline for complaints in September 10th. So far, the county has received over $2,000 complaints, down from over $6,000 last year.
