BLOOMINGDALE, Ill. – State Rep. Diane Pappas, D-Itasca, was appointed to the newly-formed Property Tax Relief Task Force to study and recommend new policies to the General Assembly to lighten the property tax burden on Illinois homeowners.
“Current property taxes are weighing down homeowners, and they simply cannot afford it any longer,” Pappas said. “Families in my communities need tax relief, and I will fight to ensure they get it.”
Pappas advocated for the creation of the Property Tax Relief Task Force to help develop true and comprehensive solutions to cut property taxes for homeowners throughout the state. The task force created by Senate Bill 1932 is comprised of legislators of both parties and other leaders across the state. Within 90 days, it will produce a report outlining policy solutions for implementing property tax relief for homeowners.
“Home ownership is expensive enough without saddling families with sky-high taxes,” Pappas said. “This task force will focus on creative fixes to lighten that burden and bring economic opportunity to middle-class families.”
