Applications for 2013 Senior Property Tax Exemptions Have Been Mailed

2013 Senior Exemptions Renewal Applications 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. The completed applications should be returned to the Cook County Assessor’s office by February 5, 2014.
 
Eligibility for Senior Citizen Exemptions
There are two senior citizen property tax exemptions:
 
1) The Senior Exemption is available to all seniors regardless of income. It is available for any owner-occupied residential property whose owner was born in 1948 or earlier. 
 
2) The Senior Freeze provides some seniors with additional savings if the combined income of all members of the household is less than $55,000, and if the senior has been an owner-occupant of the property since January 1, 2012.
 
Savings from the exemptions will appear on the second installment tax bills in 2014.
 
Law on Erroneous Exemptions

A new law requires taxpayers to repay tax savings received from tax exemptions for which they were not eligible. If a senior citizen recently died or moved, the property is not eligible for a senior exemption this year unless the senior resided in the property at some time during 2013.

 

Seniors with questions about the applications can call the Township office at 847-446-8200.
