Dear Neighbor:The City of Chicago has announced the launch of the Property Tax Rebate Program. Applications will be accepted October 1 through November 30. I encourage you to check your eligibility below and apply for a rebate if you are eligible.
The program is available to homeowners citywide, and includes a standard rebate for qualifying homeowners, a senior supplement for eligible senior homeowners, and an enhanced grant for homeowners experiencing significant hardship.
If you are a Chicago homeowner with a household adjusted gross income (HAGI) of $75,000 or less earned in 2015 and the City portion of your most recent property tax bill (received in July 2016) increased from the previous year’s property tax bill (received in July 2015), you may be eligible for a rebate from the City of Chicago.
If you do not have a copy of your property tax bill, click here to visit the Cook County Treasurer’s website to look it up.
Homeowners can apply for a rebate beginning October 1, 2016. The application deadline is November 30, 2016. Homeowners must apply for the rebate in person at one of the neighborhood processing locations or at City Hall. The two closest locations to our ward are Northside Community Development Corporation, 1530 W. Morse Ave., and Northside Community Federal Credit Union, 1011 W. Lawrence Ave.
In order to qualify for a City of Chicago property tax rebate, homeowners must meet all the following eligibility requirements:
