The Kane County Assessment Office reminds property owners who may be eligible for tax savings in 2021 that the deadline to seek a Certificate of Error is Oct 1, 2022.

Homestead Exemptions are available for properties that are the principal residence of the owner-taxpayer; the actual tax savings depends upon the amount of the exemption and the tax rate for a specific property.  

Available exemptions include:

Exemption                                        2021 Amount               Qualifications in addition to taxpayer occupancy

​General                                                     $6,000                     None

Senior Citizen                                           $5,000                     Owner must be 65 years old or older on December 31, 2021

Senior Citizen Assessment Freeze         Varies                     Senior Citizen with household income up to $65,000 in 2020

Home Improvement                           Up to $25,000               Improvements made to taxpayer-occupied residence

Persons with Disabilities                         $2,000                     Taxpayer-occupant with Class 2 or Class 2A disabilities

Veterans with Disabilities                  Amount Varies              Veteran with service-connected disability rating of at least 30%

Returning Veterans                                  $5,000                     Veteran returning from an armed conflict

Some exemptions are applied prior to equalization, and certain conditions may apply.  For more information on exemptions, please contact your township assessor, the Kane County Assessment Office at (630) 208-3818, or visit

If a taxpayer qualifies for one these homestead exemptions and it isn't reflected on a tax bill, is it too late to get credit for 2021?

No, it isn't.

Contact the Kane County Assessment Office at (630) 208-3818 ​to determine if you qualify.  If you do, the Board of Review will issue a Certificate of Error and either a corrected tax bill will be issued or a refund will be sent. 

​The last day a Certificate of Error can be issued to correct a 2021 tax bill is October 1, 2022.​
