Homestead Exemption Form

Homestead Exemption Form.pdf

If you are an Illinois resident, served honorable, have at least a 50% service-connected disability, please fill out the form through the link above. Instructions are on the second page. If you are the widow of a service-connected disabled Veteran, you will be eligible for this exemption as long as it was being taken advantage of while the veteran was alive. If you were not receiving this exemption while the Veteran was alive, you will not be eligible.

You will need a copy of the DD214, and a recent letter from the Department of Veterans Affairs, showing the disability percentage (award letter). These items are to be submitted along with the filled out form. The address where to send it to is on the second page.
