DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. – State Rep. Anne Stava-Murray, D-Naperville, will work to provide critical property tax relief for suburban homeowners as a member of the state’s newly created Property Tax Relief Tax Force, which will push for reforms to provide both long-term and immediate relief.
“Rising property taxes are a growing issue in our suburban communities, and as a member of this task force I’ll have the opportunity to be a part of the conversations on how to enact meaningful property tax relief,” said Stava-Murray.
Stava-Murray co-sponsored Senate Bill 1932 to create the Property Tax Relief Task Force, which is tasked with developing comprehensive solutions to provide long and short-term property tax relief to Illinois homeowners. As a member of the bipartisan task force, Stava-Murray will work with members of both parties and other stakeholders to report proposals for reform by the end of the year.
To provide additional relief to local families and seniors, Stava-Murray also voted for a new law to create a property tax rebate for homeowners.
“Families move in to our communities because of the schools, parks, libraries and safe neighborhoods. We can fund these vital services without driving families out of their homes due to increasing property taxes,” Stava-Murray added. “I am eager to work with Democratic and Republican members of this task force to brainstorm creative, comprehensive solutions to the local property tax crisis.”
