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
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.

applicant’s rebate will be determined
