There is still time to apply for your property tax rebate from the City of Chicago. The City has extended the deadline to apply in person at any of the over 20 neighborhood locations to Friday, December 30, 2016.
The City of Chicago Property Tax Rebate Program provides working- and middle-class families and seniors some property tax relief through a City-funded rebate.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the Chicago City Council launched this rebate program to help offset the property tax increase needed to fund the pensions of Chicago’s police officers and firefighters. The program is available to homeowners citywide, and it is easy to apply at any of the over 20 neighborhood locations.
The program includes a standard rebate for qualifying homeowners, a senior supplement for eligible senior homeowners, and an enhanced grant for homeowners experiencing significant hardship.
