An Overview of Property Tax

Exemptions Available to Homeowners

Illinois law currently provides taxpayers with four homestead exemptions which may reduce the total equalized assessed valuation by the mandated amount for each exemption prior to the computation of the dollar amount of taxes due. The exemptions are as follows:

1. Homestead Limited Exemption

This exemption will lower the equalized value of the property by a maximum of $8,000. To qualify, you must own and live on the property.

2. Senior Homestead Exemption

If you are the owner of a residential property, occupied it prior to Jan. 1 of the assessment year and turned 65 anytime during the assessment year, your equalized value may be reduced by $8,000 of assessed value.

3. Senior Assessment Freeze:

This exemption freezes applicants qualifying assessed valuation by establishing a base assessment year. This will be used to compute future taxes each year the applicant qualifies. This base assessed valuation will be used in computing the amount of taxes. You must file an annual application and meet age (65+), owner, and annual gross income criteria mandated by statute to continue to qualify.
