Some DuPage property taxes up 50% in Kane County error

An property tax mix-up in DuPage and Kane County resulted in District U-46 residents’ property taxes to have gone up as much as 50 percent over the past two years. But the district also includes some Kane County residents who say their bills have gone down by the same amount.

The discrepancy allegedly happened because the Kane County Clerk’s office made a mistake.

The discrepancy is slated to be fixed by charging DuPage County residents less and Kane County residents more, but not until next summer. For more information: read the ABC7 report
