    My GE Park District taxes went down significantly, due in large part to Dr. Jay Kinzler, former Park District President. My D41 taxes went down slightly, but those savings were wiped out by D 87's increases. No fiscally responsible board, no watchdogs, no tax decrease. Yep, Mary Ozog deserves something, but it sure isn't a ticket to the County Board.

    Are we not all enjoying the windfall of the Pool referendum about now, or did we already spend that?

    D41 must not have as good of a PR person as the Park District. D41 taxes went down significantly too (About $160 for PD, $130 for 41 on my bill).

    So thanks to the Park District for letting the bonds roll off and being able to accomplish their projects with current funds.

    Also thanks to D41 for only asking the community to renew what they needed in the bonds as well as zeroing the levy (unheard of around here). To my knowledge nothing was cut. All still operating business as usual and they were both able to do this within the budget by watching spending! Remember they had a $5 million surplus last year.

    And HUGE thanks to D41 board members Currie, Buchholz, Clark and D'Ambrosio for NOT maxing the levy just because they could.

    My D41 taxes went down about $100. This will be a savings for many years down the road. Thankful for the four yes votes.

    All the alarmists who said we’d be losing state funding and that programs would be cut...I never appreciated their scare tactics.

    Was looking at a house for sale this AM and wandered over to the tax history . . . and was reminded why Illinois is losing its population. Assessed value went up 11.5% in this time while property taxes went up 31.5%. I guess I consider myself lucky. Since 2000, my assessed value has increased 34.4% and the taxes are 34.1% higher. In the same time period as the data on the house for sale, 2007-current, my assessed value has fallen 9.4% and the taxes have gone up 8.6%.

    Of course, none of this makes sense to me. But whatevs. Stupid Illinois.

    Property Tax
    Year Taxes Land Additions Total Assessment
    2017 $27,269 $89,110 + $276,360 = $365,470
    2016 $27,913 $99,900 + $254,080 = $353,980
    2015 $26,051 $95,310 + $220,590 = $315,900
    2014 $25,678 $38,460 + $261,940 = $300,400
    2013 $24,997 $38,580 + $262,730 = $301,310
    2012 $24,277 $40,230 + $273,960 = $314,190
    2011 $20,890 $42,966 + $292,597 = $335,563
    2010 $22,760 $46,200 + $313,680 = $359,880
    2009 $20,498 $48,000 + $301,880 = $349,880
    2008 $20,117 $48,000 + $301,880 = $349,880
    2007 $18,683 $45,800 + $277,180 = $322,980
