Crespo with proposal to eliminate need for seniors to reapply for property tax relief
Cook County seniors would no longer have to reapply annually for much-needed property tax relief under legislation introduced by state Rep. Fred Crespo, a Democrat from Hoffman Estates. "Local seniors shouldn't have to go through burdensome bureaucracy to receive necessary relief on their property taxes," Crespo said. "This is a common-sense reform that will make government more efficient and accessible while we work to provide greater relief to seniors and middle-class families across our state." Crespo's proposal would ensure qualifying seniors continue receiving their senior citizen homestead exemption without having to reapply every year. Crespo represents the 44th House District, which includes portions of Hoffman Estates, Streamwood, Schaumburg, Hanover Park, Bartlett and Elgin.
