The Cook County Board of Review and Chicago City Council have passed ordinances to authorize a property tax abatement in their jurisdictions for the surviving spouses of Cook County’s fallen heroes. The program services surviving spouses of a fallen police office, soldier or rescue work. This program will recognize and honor the ongoing impact of this sacrifice on these families.
The program can abate up to 100% of a surviving spouse’s Cook County and City of Chicago property tax liability. The Cook County Board of Review will administer the program and surviving spouses apply for the abatement directly with the Board of Review.
