Springfield, IL-(ENEWSPF)- Responding news that county and township assessors have sent out property tax bills to local homeowners, state Rep. Anthony DeLuca, D-Chicago Heights, issued the following statement reinforcing the need for real property tax relief for Illinois residents:
“Property taxes have continued to rise forcing families out of their homes and out of Illinois because they can no longer afford the high cost of these taxes. Its clear families need a break in the form of real property tax relief.
“As a strong supporter of property tax relief, I have repeatedly fought to help homeowners keep more of their hard-earned money by voting numerous times to freeze or reduce their property tax bills.
“In light of this, it’s clear more must be done to ease the tax burden faced by middle-class families, which is why in I continue to be a vocal advocate for real property tax relief.”
Aside from the mention that Rep. DeLuca voted “numerous times to freeze or reduce” property tax bills, however, that are no mentions of specifics in the statement, including future proposals the state representative might have.
