The assessor is concerned with value, not taxes. The assessor does not collect taxes, calculate taxes or determine the tax rate. Taxing jurisdictions such as schools, cities, and townships, adopt budgets which determine the tax levy. The actual dollar amount of your tax bill is determined by how much money these local agencies need to operate. Every dollar of property tax remains in the local area to fund local government.

In summary, rising taxes are the result of rising demands for money, not the result of rising property values. In a given year, when values increase, tax rates would decrease to generate the same tax dollars as the prior year. In a given year, when property values decrease, tax rates would increase to generate the same tax amount as the prior year. Except for that part of the township or county levy, which is needed to cover office budgets, assessment bodies do not TAX. Rather, they evaluate property according to the action of the market. It is not the local Assessor who decides the tax liability, as commonly believed.
A person qualifies for this exemption if the person
This exemption “freezes” the senior citizen’s property’s equalized assessed value the year that the senior citizen qualifies for the exemption. The property’s equalized assessed value does not increase as long as qualification for the exemption continues. The tax bill may still increase if any tax rates are increased or if improvements are added that increase the value of the property.
This exemption allows senior citizens who meet the qualifications to elect to maintain the equalized assessed value (EAV) of their homes at the base year EAV and prevent any increase in that value due to inflation. The amount of the exemption benefit is determined each year based on (1) the property’s current EAV minus the frozen base year value (the property’s prior year’s EAV for which the applicant first qualifies for the exemption), and (2) the applicant’s total household maximum income limitation. – Illinois Department of Revenue
