Property tax freeze bill advances
1/11/2017, 8 a.m.
The Illinois House Revenue & Finance Committee has approved
legislation filed by State Representative Mark Batinick (R-Plainfield) to enact a permanent property tax freeze, House Bill 6630.
The bill now advances to the full House of Representatives for consideration.
Rep. Batinick's legislation resets Illinois' property tax extension formula to 0.0%, starting in levy year 2016 and continuing thereafter with no provision to sunset or be phased out. It also allows voters of any taxing district to approve a levy increase (property tax hike) by referendum, if they so choose.
