The Historic Preservation Property Tax Assessment Freeze can freeze the assessed value of a contributing property within the local historic districts that has an approved preservation ordinance. Upon certification, the property tax assessment of the real estate is frozen for a period of 8 years at the pre-renovation level, followed by a four-year period during which the property’s assessed value steps up to an amount based upon its current market value. This results in 12 years of reduced property taxes.

This program is administered free of charge as a benefit to Illinois property owners interested in rehabilitating their historic properties.
