What Freeze on Real Estate Taxes?
“Skokie will hold its first budget hearing next week, introducing a spending plan calling for a freeze on property taxes for the 21st consecutive year.”
The Village keeps bragging about its freeze on real estate taxes. What freeze on real estate taxes? Has not everyone had their real estate taxes rise every year for over 21 years?
To be fair, the village is not the only taxing authority to impose real estate taxes. Probably not even the largest. It is irritating when I hear this talk about a freeze on Real estate taxes and yet see taxes increase every year.
