Property Tax Exemption

2 Replies

Illinois offers a property tax exemption on primary residence to disabled veterans over 70%. Has anyone here ever used this. I recently found out about it and would be interested in using it with a creative financing option like sub to or owner financing if possible.

It's available to owner occupied properties as follows:

Disabled Veterans' Standard Homestead Exemption For veterans with a disability between 30 - 50 percent the exemption is $2,500; for veterans with a 50 - 70 percent disability the exemption is $5,000; veterans with a service-connected disability of at least 70% are exempt from property taxes on their primary residence.

I would focus also on things like wheelchair accessible features if you go down this route.
