Recently, State Senator Emil Jones III (D-Chicago), had a measure he sponsored signed into law that helps new homeowners their property tax bill. Senate Bill 780 requires county assessors to mail information to new homeowners regarding the rules and filing periods for applying and reapplying for exemptions.
“When homes are purchased, especially by first time homeowners, it’s important that we provide them with information about saving possibilities,” Senator Jones said. “This new law is fair and will help families focus their finances on living expenses and future investments.”
