An unbelievable double property tax heist is under way in McHenry Township, one by the township and one by the township road district. There are two distinct governments in a township, each with its own taxing authority. With 1,433 units, Illinois has the most township governments and Township Road Districts in the nation.

For one, consider the Notice Of Proposed Property Tax Increase For McHenry Township. The corporate property tax levy for 2020 was $800,023.04. The proposed corporate property tax levy for 2021 is $1,515,927.00. This represents an 89.5% increase over the previous year.

 

Then consider, the Notice Of Proposed Property Tax Increase For McHenry Township Road District. The corporate property tax levy for 2020 was $2,095,008.03. The proposed corporate property tax levy for 2021 is $3,205,362.00. This represents a 53% increase over the previous year.

These are eye-popping numbers.
