Welcome to the Elgin Township Assessor's website. We have created this as a service to Elgin Township residents. Our website provides quick and convenient access to Elgin Township assessment information when doing a Property Search.

We also provide information about the Illinois Property Tax system as well as information about property exemptions available to homeowners and senior citizens. I hope you find this website useful and I would appreciate any comments you may have.
