2020 Exemption Check!

I would like to remind you to make sure you have your General Homestead Exemption and any other exemptions you are eligible for.

In order to confirm your exemptions, visit our property search portal at IMSLake.org. Agree to the terms of use and enter your 10-digit PIN. When you scroll to the bottom of the screen, there are four County links. Click on the Exemption link and the County's site will display your current exemptions.

General Homestead Exemption (GHE)
If your General Homestead Exemption (GHE) does not appear, it may be for one of the following reasons:

  • You have not applied for the exemption.
  • You purchased your home this year and the Seller did not have a GHE.
  • You recently placed your property in a trust and the exemptions were removed due to the transfer of property to your trust.

If you do not have your GHE and you purchased your home in 2020, you are eligible for the exemption in 2021. Contact our office after January 1, 2021 and we can file online for you or you can file through Lake County's Smartfile E-Filing Portal.

Senior Citizen Homestead Exemption (SCHE)
Homeowners turning 65 years old this year are eligible for the Senior Citizen Homestead Exemption.

Senior Citizen Assessment Freeze Homestead Exemption (SCAFHE)
Homeowners that are 65 years old with an income of $65,000 or less are eligible for the Senior Citizen Assessment Freeze. If you received the Freeze last year, you are automatically filed for the 2020 Freeze, due to COVID.
However, you need to make sure you file for your Senior Freeze in 2021.

Disabled Person or Disabled Veterans Homestead Exemption
If you received the Disabled Persons or Disabled Veterans Homestead Exemption last year, you are automatically filed for the exemption for 2020 due to COVID. However, you need to make sure you file for your exemption in 2021.

Filing for your Exemptions is quick and easy through Lake County's Smartfile E-Filing Portal. If you are unable to file online, please contact our office at info@cubaassessoril.gov or 847-381-1120.

We are here to serve you!

Sincerely,
Rebecca M. Tonigan, CIAO
