Comparing 2018 vs 2008 L.C. Real Estate Taxes…part one

Posted by

We have completed a comprehensive study of Lake County Real Estate taxes.  We asked the Auditor’s office for and received the real estate taxes billed for the calendar years 2008 versus 2018 by political sub-division and taxing districts.  We wish to extend our thanks to Mr. Ed Zupancic, Auditor,  and his very cooperative and competent staff for their assistance with this project.

Our first schedule compares real estate taxes for CY 2018 versus CY 2008 by political sub-division. This schedule allocates the Perry and Madison Fire Districts to the appropriate municipality.  However, it has not allocated the revenue received by the Lake County School Financing District to the respective schools.

The next schedule compares the Rates of Taxation for 2017 by taxing districts.  It has been sorted based on the residential effective rates.

Our next post will give you the individual taxing district’s comparison by political sub-division.  We will then post about the individual school districts in Lake County.

(Comment: This entire study has demonstrated very clearly to us that if we stay on this path of ever increasing real estate taxes, we will price our seniors and others living on a fixed income out of their homes that they have worked all of their lives to achieve. We are trying to wake up Lake County residents to that fact.)
