Owner-Occupied Exemption for Single Family Rentals

Similar to the Owner-Occupied Exemption, this exemption applies to Single Family Homes that are RENTED. In order for the property to qualify, the Tenant must occupy the home as of January 1st AND be liable for the payment of real estate taxes with respect to the residence in accordance with the terms and conditions of 35 ILCS 200/15-175.
This exemption (application for the 2017 Tax Bill can be found here), must be applied for every year. The deadline for this application along with a copy of the lease is due by April 2, 2018.
