COLES COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) — The battle over property taxes continues. A group opposed to a reassessment project has filed suit.
The Concerned Taxpayers of Coles County say the county’s hiring of appraiser Bob Becker was not legal. They say it should void new property values he reached in his project.
The issue of new property taxes started two years ago, shortly after Mattoon business owners received notices of new values with commercial and industrial reassessments.
