The Illinois Property Taxes are back and up again.
In this time of economic hardship, the Illinois state government has decided to raise the property tax rate to a whopping $5,500 a year.
The rate is the highest in the nation, and it means Illinois taxpayers will be paying the lion’s share of the cost of their homes, cars and utilities.
This increase was approved by voters in November.
It’s been a divisive issue in Illinois, and now that it’s gone up again Illinois homeowners and renters are having a tough time keeping up with the increase.
But, in the end, the voters did the right thing and they’re going to continue to keep property taxes low and fair for Illinois families.
Property owners have the option to stay with the current rate or increase their property tax by the amount that they have paid.
If they do that, they’ll save money by paying less, but it also means their taxes will go up.
This is the kind of policy that’s needed to help all Illinois taxpayers, including those struggling to pay their mortgage or utility bills.
The Illinois Legislature passed legislation last year that lowered the property taxes to $4,500.
That’s the amount of property tax paid by Illinois families in 2016.
If you own a home and paid the average Illinois property tax of $4.20 per $1,000 of assessed value, that’s $4 million that’s being lost because of this property tax increase.
That $4M will be in the pocket of Illinois taxpayers.
The new property tax bill will increase the state’s property tax rates to a maximum of $5.25 per $100 of assessed valuation.
In other words, if you own two houses worth $100,000 and paid $3,000 in assessed value in 2016, the new property taxes will add $1.25 to the property value.
That means you’ll pay a whopping increase in property taxes of $1 million a year, which is a staggering amount of money for families who are struggling to keep up with their bills.
If the new tax increases are approved by the legislature, it will go into effect in 2020.
That would mean property owners will pay a total of $3.25 million in new taxes for the year.
If that doesn’t get you concerned, let me just tell you how concerned I am.
Illinois Property taxes are among the highest of any state in the country.
The current property tax system in Illinois is based on the assessed value of the home.
Property tax assessments are based on gross receipts from the sale of the property.
This means the homeowner pays a portion of the taxes for their property, like the cost to repair or paint the property, the cost for the maintenance of the house, and even for the costs associated with the upkeep of the building.
The value of a home can change dramatically over the years.
Some homes are valued at $10 million or more.
So, the average homeowner pays about $3 million in taxes each year.
Property taxes have been raised to the highest level in the United States in decades, and that’s the result of the state taking measures to make property taxes fairer and more affordable for Illinois residents.
We want to be the best place in the world to live.
Property values have historically been high, but the recent tax increases have been especially brutal.
In recent years, property values have declined, which has caused property tax bills to skyrocket.
As property values decline, so too do the bills for property maintenance and repair.
It has become increasingly difficult for many homeowners to make ends meet, and property owners have no choice but to move to a cheaper place to live, work or retire.
If property taxes are to stay low and equitable for Illinois property owners, they need to be made more affordable.
