180601 F XX123 0001SPRINGFIELD – Residents of the South Suburbs will see a reduction in their property tax bills as a result of a school funding reform law offering relief to school districts with high taxes.

“Funding our schools through property taxes has been a burden for our communities for countless years and it’s great to see that some homeowners and small businesses will see that burden lessened.” Jones said. “I’m glad to see that Patton School District will see the benefit of this.”

The school district who’s eligible for the tax relief grant:
• Gen. George Patton School District 133: $170,552.13

Eligible schools districts must submit an abatement resolution to their county clerks by March 30. If the school district qualifies, the ISBE will issue the grants to the schools who are most suitable.
“Education will always be a top agenda for our state, but we also need to ensure that the impact of education funding falls upon our residents fairly,” Jones said. “This is a big step toward achieving that.”
For more information, the Property Tax Relief Grant and a listing of each eligible school district can be found at www.ISBE.net/proptaxrelief.
