Automatic renewal of exemptions

In response to the Covid-19 crisis, the State has enacted legislation to automatically renew exemptions for tax year 2020.  The automatic renewals will affect the Senior Assessment Freeze, Disabled Persons, Disabled Veterans exemptions.

If a taxpayer had any of the exemptions in place for tax year 2019, then the exemption will automatically be granted for tax year 2020.  Taxpayers do not need to renew or file for this year.  If a taxpayer has already submitted an application or renewal for 2020, no further action is required.

The only instance where an application must be made is for first time applicants or if there has been a change is the Disabled Veterans disability rating.

This legislation was supported by the Lake County Township Assessor’s Association to protect the most venerable population from the spread of Covid-19.  Lake County will be mailing notices to those taxpayers who are impacted.

Please contact the Assessor’s office should if you have questions at 847-634-4602.
