Special to suffredin.org

Cook County, Illinois.  Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin (13th District) is pleased to announce that the majority of homeowners in the 13th District had lower property taxes in 2004 as compared with 2003 because of the 7% Expanded Homeowners Exemption offered by Cook County Assessor James Houlihan.

The attached chart details the impact of the 7% Homeowners Exemption for the communities in the 13th District.  Highlights include:

·       61.1% of parcels in Evanston have the Homeowners Exemption; of these parcels, 62% of the parcels had lower taxes in 2004 than 2003; the median exemption savings was $1,518

·       73.2% of parcels in Niles have the Homeowners Exemption; of these parcels, 60.3% had lower taxes in 2004 than 2003; the median exemption savings was $1,197

 ·       70% of parcels in Wilmette have the Homeowners Exemption; of these parcels, 58.2% had lower taxes in 2004 than 2003; the median exemption savings was $1,247

This tax savings will be reflected on the second installment of the 2004 tax bill which is to be paid to the Treasurer by Tuesday, November 1, 2005.

Commissioner Suffredin commented, “analysis shows that as predicated, a large number of homeowners benefited from the 7% Expanded Homeowners Exemption.  Looking forward, we need to do everything we can to pass legislation to make the exemption permanent or make sure it is reauthorized.”
