From January 2, 2016 through March 1, 2016 I will accept applications for the Senior Citizen Real Estate Tax Deferral program. It is for taxpayers over 65 years old who are on limited fixed incomes and find it difficult to pay a large tax bill.

This state program provides a loan against the property’s market value to pay real estate property taxes. Deferred amounts are “borrowed” from the state of Illinois who pays the bill. A 6% simple interest applies to the amount loaned.

Always review the back of the bill for payment options and collector policies.  Call 217-277-2245 if you have any questions.
