2020 Senior Citizens Assessment Freeze Homestead Exemption Application and Affidavit.

News from Waukegan Township Assessor,

Normally, in tax years previous to Covid 19, Lake County would have sent out notices and renewal forms for your Senior Citizens Assessment Freeze. Your local assessor’s office is available to assist with these forms  after they are mailed. This mailing has been postponed for a undetermined amount of time.  We will keep you posted.

 Remember to be eligible for a Assessment Freeze, you must be over 65 years of age, have income under $65,000.00. You must show proof of income with tax returns and driver’s license for identification.  Also, please note: This exemption does not freeze your taxes, but the value of your property.  For any additional information visit Lake County Assessor’s website at:  www.lakecountyil.gov/154/Chief-County-Assessment-Office

The Waukegan Township Assessor’s office is closed to the public until further notice. Please call and leave a message 847  623-4550 our staff will will get back to you within one business day. Or you can email the assessor at mstricklin@waukegantownshipassessor.com  Thank you for your patience and understanding in these difficult and challenging times.
