Time to File SENIOR CITIZEN PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTIONS Has Been Extended By Terry Kelly, Assessor
Yes, it is time to file for your Senior Citizen and Senior Freeze property tax exemptions. Cook County has extended the filing period until February 20th. Exemptions can help reduce your property tax bill. Stop by the Township Assessor’s Office and we’ll make sure the proper paperwork is filed.
If you are applying for your Senior Exemption for the first time you will need a copy of your most recent tax bill and an Illinois issued ID/Driver's License. If you are applying for the Senior Freeze also bring in your 2011 income tax return. You must apply for each of these exemptions every year. You must have a birth date of 1947 or before to qualify for these exemptions. The Senior Freeze is based on total household income, which must be less than $55,000.
