Cook County Seniors need to reapply for Tax Exemption

Cook County Senior Citizen Tax Exemptions

A new law in Cook County is requiring that Senior Citizens reapply for their property tax exemption annually from 2010 forward. In previous years the exemption was automatic. The Assessor’s office has mailed the applications this week, so look for these forms in the mail. The form can also be downloaded on the Assessor’s website or may be obtained by calling (312) 443-7550.

To qualify for the exemption, applicants:
Must have been born in 1945 or prior and use the property as their principal residence.

For more information, please read an article from the Cook County Assessor.
