Two Options for Seniors to Save Money

2. Senior Freeze Exemption

The Senior Freeze Exemption is a property tax savings opportunity for Seniors who earn less than $55,000 per year and want to keep property tax bills lower. The freeze doesn’t freeze the property taxes- rather it freezes the equalized value. If the budget goes up and a higher rate of taxes is levied, your bill will go up.

The VALUE of your home will stay the same, however. Like the Senior Citizen Exemption, you MUST APPLY EVERY YEAR. cook county property taxes
