TAX REBATE

TAX REBATE

For 2016, the village board has

approved a property tax rebate in

the amount of $2.2 million. Including

the upcoming rebate, the village will

have rebated property taxes for 12

of the last 15 years.

“We began rebating property taxes

to residents in 2003, and despite a

suspension of the program during the

economic downturn, we’re pleased

that the village is again in a strong

financial position to offer the rebate,”

said Mayor McLaughlin.

In total, the Village of Orland Park

will have rebated approximately

$38.9 million since 2003.

“Even though the village’s portion

of the property tax bill is only about

seven percent of the total, the rebate

does give some relief for residents,”

McLaughlin said. “We’re fortunate to

be able to provide the rebate utilizing

the village’s Home Rule Sales Tax

collections, while continuing to provide

a large number of valuable services

and projects for village residents.”

Online and paper applications were

available beginning at 8am on

Monday, October 31. Deadline

for applications was December 16

by 5pm.

Along with the required application,

residents were required to include

copies of their 2015 second installment

property tax bill, driver’s license and

a utility bill. Those who applied online

were able to scan and upload copies

of the documents or take a picture of

them with a cell phone or tablet.

“The online process makes it more

convenient for those who are familiar

with computers and uploading

documents,” McLaughlin said.

“However, we have paper applications

for those who don’t use computers.”

Eligible residents were able to choose

to receive their rebate via check, credit

to a water bill account, donation

to the Open Lands of Orland Park

Foundation, or direct deposit into a

checking or savings account.

The dollar amount of an individual

applicant’s rebate will be determined

when all applications received by

the due date have been processed

and approved.

Rebates will be mailed or credited

the week of March 20, 2017.
