Tax Incentives

Sarnoff Property Tax can guide you through Cook County’s tax incentives, simplifying the process to understand and obtain reductions.

Whether you’re dealing with industrial, commercial or multifamily properties, incentives can significantly cut taxes for up to 12 years. These benefits often require improvements or occupancy of vacant properties and come with specific conditions like location and wage requirements.

Sarnoff’s expertise ensures clients navigate these options effectively, securing the best possible savings.

Industrial

All of the Incentives last for 12 years, essentially reduce taxes by 60% for the first 10 years and require municipal approval (may require Cook County Board of Commissioners approval).

Class 6B: This incentive is designed to encourage industrial development throughout Cook County by offering a real estate tax incentive for the development of new industrial facilities, the rehabilitation of existing industrial structures, and the industrial reutilization of abandoned buildings.

Class 8: This incentive is designed to encourage industrial and commercial development in areas of the county that are experiencing severe economic stagnation.

Class C: This special property designation is designed to encourage industrial and commercial development throughout Cook County by offering a tax incentive for the remediation of contaminated properties, including abandoned property or vacant land.

Class L: This special property designation includes real estate to be used for commercial, industrial, multifamily residential or not-for-profit purposes and has been individually designated as a landmark or is a contributing building in a designated historic or landmark district.

Commercial

All of the Incentives last for 12 years (excluding the Class 7c Incentive), essentially reduce taxes by 60% for the first 10 years and require municipal approval (may require Cook County Board of Commissioners approval).

Class 7A: This incentive is intended to encourage commercial projects in areas determined to need commercial development. These projects have total development costs, exclusive of land, that do not exceed $2 million and would not be economically feasible without the incentive.

Class 7B: This incentive is intended to encourage commercial projects in areas determined to need commercial development. These projects have total development costs, exclusive of land, which exceed $2 million and would not be economically feasible without the incentive.

Class 7C: Commercial projects that qualify for this incentive will receive a reduced assessment level on a graduated basis over 5 years.

Class 7D: This commercial “food desert” incentive is intended to encourage the operation of grocery stores in areas where it would not be economically feasible without assistance.

Class 8: This incentive is designed to encourage industrial and commercial development in areas of the county that are experiencing severe economic stagnation.

Class C: This special property designation is designed to encourage industrial and commercial development throughout Cook County by offering a tax incentive for the remediation of contaminated properties, including abandoned property or vacant land.

Multifamily

Class 9: This incentive is designed to encourage new development, rehabilitation, and long-term preservation of affordable multifamily rental housing throughout Cook County.

Class S: This special property designation is subject to a project-based Section 8 contract that has been renewed under the United States Housing and Urban Development (HUD) “Mark Up To Market” (MUTM) option. The Section 8 units must be retained during the five-year term of the renewed MUTM contract.

Class L: This special property designation includes real estate to be used for commercial, industrial, multifamily residential, or not-for-profit purposes and has been individually designated as a landmark or is a contributing building in a designated historic or landmark district.

Affordable Housing Incentive:
Illinois has introduced a law to encourage the addition of affordable housing by offering property tax reductions to owners of multifamily buildings who dedicate a portion of their units to low-income housing.

These incentives, varying in duration and reduction percentage based on the commitment level, aim to make it financially appealing for property owners to support affordable housing initiatives.

Sarnoff Property Tax can assist clients in navigating these incentives, ensuring they maximize the tax benefits while contributing to community development through affordable housing.

For detailed assistance and to explore how these incentives can benefit your property, contacting us is a proactive step toward achieving favorable tax assessments and supporting community housing needs.
