SENIOR TAX DEFERRAL: From
January 2, 2015 through March 1, 2015 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.
