Applications for Senior Property Tax Exemptions Have Been Mailed

Exemption Renewal Applications for taxes payable in 2016 have been mailed to seniors previously receiving exemptions. Application forms for those applying for the first time are available in the Township Office and on-line at www.cookcountyassessor.com.
 
Eligibility for Senior Citizen Exemptions--There are two senior citizen tax exemptions:
 
1) The Senior Exemption, available for senior owner-occupied property (65 in the year you are paying taxes for) regardless of income, and reduces property taxes by about $400 -$500.
 
2) The Senior Freeze provides qualified seniors with additional savings if the combined income of all members of the household is less than $55,000.
 

Savings from the exemptions will appear on the second installment tax bills in 2016.
