Appealing assessment - long term homeowner's exemption

I noticed that I didn't get credit for the long term homeowner. But when I went to the assessor's website there was no form for that exemption. Does anyone know what it is and how to get the form? Thanks!

  • I've been in this house 16 years so I think iqualify for long term!

  • Joe Kopera Logan Square resident since 1961 (54 years in Jan)

    I'm not totally sure but I think it only applies when the increase in assessment exceeds some sort of percentage (7% ?) otherwise you get the regular homeowner exemption.
    My new assessment on the back show that for 2009 to 2011 that I received the Long Time Owner exemption and shows $0.00 for the Home Owner exemption. Then for 2012 to 2014 shows I received the Home Owner exemption and $0.00 for the Long Time Owner exemption.

Bike Found In Alley

A bike was left in our alley yesterday between 1am-8am. It's a red/burgundy ten speed that I'm guessing was stolen and abandoned. Describe it and we'd be happy to turn it back over to its owner. Our building is at the 1200 block of Artesian. Thanks.

3300-3399 W. Beach Ave. Thoughts on the block?

My husband and I are looking to possibly move to the 3300-3399 block of Beach Avenue in Humboldt park. Does anyone on every block live near or on that block? And how has your experience been? Thanks for your time!

  • Pete Your Biggest Fan!

    I agree with Emilio and Bulldog on the increasing value. I don't live on beach, but my place has doubled in 2 years and I didn't even do anything. We had a small group of idiots who wore gang colors and hung out around a convenience store and the convenience store was closed and gang was arrested. (This is one of Maldonado's better initiatives which should be expanded.)

  • His house supposedly doubled in value somewhere else in two years, so what could go wrong?
