Home Improvement Exemption

The Home Improvement Exemption encourages the expansion or renovation of homes by delaying taxation on up to $75,000 worth of improvements for at least four years.

You do not have to apply for a Home Improvement Exemption.  It will be given automatically.  You will be eligible for the exemption after you apply for a building permit to improve your home.

Please call 847-358-6164 with any questions.
