Under Illinois law, several programs designed to provide property tax relief are available to homeowners. We have prepared this guide to familiarize you with these programs, and to answer the most frequently asked questions. We also have provided definitions of terms which are frequently used in discussing property taxes.
As you will learn, eligibility requirements vary widely among these programs, and you should review each program’s qualifications carefully.
The staff in the Township Assessor’s Office will be happy to provide additional information, and we encourage you to contact us if you have questions about these programs.
