SENIOR TAX DEFERRAL PROGRAM
December 21, 2020
KANE COUNTY TREASURER, DAVID J. RICKERT, would like to remind taxpayers that information and forms for the Senior Citizens Property Tax Deferral program are now available in the Treasurer’s office.
The program allows qualified senior citizens to defer all or part of their 2020 property taxes up to $5,000 on their personal residence. Applications must be filed with the Treasurer’s office by March 1, 2021 in order to defer 2020 taxes billed in 2021.
To qualify, a person must be 65 or over by June 1, 2021, have a total household income of $55,000 or less, and have lived in the property for at least three years. In addition, there must be no delinquent taxes on the property. Also, if the property is subject to a mortgage then your mortgage company would also have to approve your participation in the program.
Qualified taxpayers can defer taxes totaling up to 80 percent of the equity interest they have in the home. The program provides funding at a six percent simple interest rate which doesn’t require repayment until the taxpayer sells the property or until after the taxpayer’s death.
To apply for the program, the person has to file two forms with the County Treasurer’s office. The first form (IL1017 TD) asks for basic information on the taxpayer, their income and their property. It also requires that joint owners agree to the tax deferral. In addition, it requires that evidence be presented of adequate insurance on the property.
The second form (IL1018 TD) is the agreement for the tax deferral. It sets out the conditions of the deferral, including the amount which can be deferred, the interest rate and the arrangements for paying back the “loan”.
If you have any questions about this program, please contact the County Treasurer’s office located at 719 South Batavia Avenue in Geneva, Illinois. The phone number is 630-232-3565
ANNUAL PROPERTY TAX SALE DELAYED
October 8, 2020
Kane County Treasurer, David J. Rickert, announces that the annual property tax sale will be delayed. This sale was originally scheduled for October 26, 2020. This year, concerns over protecting the legal interests of sale participants and property owners led the States Attorney's office to advise delaying the sale pending further guidance from the Illinois Department of Revenue. A new date has not been announced.
An additional concern of Treasurer Rickert was ensuring that property owners struggling to meet this obligation due to COVID 19 were afforded additional time to pay. Taxpayers will still be subject to a state required penalty charge of 1.5% per month until payment is made; however, tax sale costs and fees will be avoided until a sale can take place. For additional information please contact the Treasurer's office at 630-232-3565.
