In 2015, Senate Bill 107 expanded the Illinois Disabled Veterans Property Tax Exemption. Beginning in taxable year 2015, which is payable in 2016, veterans with a service-connected disability rating of at least 30% can apply to have their dwelling's assessed value reduced. The amount of the reduction/exemption depends on the level of disability.
Veterans with a disability rating of 30 to 40 percent receive an exemption that reduces the assessed value of their primary dwelling by $2,500.00. A disability rating of 50 to 60 percent reduces the value by $5,000.00. A disability rating of 70 percent makes the veteran's dwelling completely exempt from taxation.
In order to take advantage of the exemption, you can apply through your county's assessor's office.
