Property Search

IMPORTANT: Do you own your home or condo? Is it your primary residence? If so, you are entitled to a homeowners exemption on your annual property taxes. If you haven't received it, we might be able to assist you with getting the refund you deserve. In some instances we can get Cook County to reimburse you for missed exemptions going back three years. Visit the Cook County Assessor's website and enter your pin# or property address. Then hit the "exemption history" and see if you've been receiving it.

Please enter a range for your search (e.g. from 1100 to 1300). For a single house, enter the exact house number in the first box and leave the second one blank.

From Deb:

This week I called for delaying a vote on the controversial Lincoln Yards TIF. The vote was eventually called over my objection--and that of the acting chairman--by way of a parliamentary maneuver. I voted NO on the proposal, which passed 9-3.

In many ways, this Lincoln Yards mega-development has become a symbol of what is wrong with the way the city council operates-- the use of public funds to benefit a private corporation in a deeply flawed and hurried process with minimal transparency.

This proposal reflects a set of completely misplaced priorities.

I do not dispute that this development will create new opportunities for some, but now is not the time to use public dollars on building a brand new neighborhood. We have far too many challenges that require our immediate attention.

We have existing neighborhoods all throughout Chicago that are struggling with a lack of affordable housing and underfunded schools, to say nothing of the impending fiscal cliff surrounding our pension obligations.

Addressing those critical needs should be our highest priority.
