Robert A. Cranston, CAE - Assessor

Real estate taxes are a complex, confusing, and frustrating fact of life. We all want the quality of life in our community to be strong and stable. We don’t mind paying our fair share to support those services that enhance and protect our children, our homes, and our lifestyles. One hundred percent of the tax dollars collected through the property tax stays in our local community and pays for those services. The state legislature has determined that the property tax burden be apportioned or spread over all the taxpayers based solely on the market value of the property that they own within the jurisdiction or in our case, Normal Township. That is the primary responsibility of the Assessor’s Office – to discover, list, and value all property. Our principal goal is to work with you, the taxpayer, to accurately and fairly assess your property. We hope you will find the information provided on these pages helpful and as always, my staff and I are available to assist you in any way.
