You should use .is(:checked) in jQuery code to check if checkbox is checked, so your code will be

if ($('#ChangeURL').is(':checked')) {
 //do something here

Using jQuery 1.6+

if ($('#ChangeURL').prop('checked')) {

OR using Javascript checked property of a checkbox

if(document.getElementById('ChangeURL').checked) {
    //Checked Code
} else {
    //Note checked

Here are the all possible jQuery method to check, Checkbox state

//here changeURL is Id of the element
