Veterans: Be Sure to Claim Your Property Tax Exemptions
For many years, Jack Schaller of Chicago’s oldest continuously operating bar, paid zero property taxes in the face of ballooning increases – and this is completely legal and fair.
Why? Because he was a veteran and a senior and he took advantage of all exemptions available to him.
If you’re a veteran homeowner in Cook County and you’re not claiming any veteran-related exemptions, you are likely paying much more than your fair share. After all, you’ve served your country so you should at least claim the exemptions you deserve.
