The Chief County Assessment Office and the Lake County Township Assessors Association will hold several public outreach sessions to assist residents in completing the 2015 Senior Citizen Assessment Freeze Application for taxes payable in 2016; as well as service taxpayer needs on other homestead exemptions offered.

Residents will work one on one with a county or township staff member to complete the necessary exemption forms.

About the Senior Freeze Exemption:
The Senior Citizens' Assessment Freeze Homestead Exemption freezes the assessment of your property. It does not freeze your tax rate; the actual taxes that you pay may continue to increase based upon the amounts levied by the taxing bodies where you reside (e.g. schools, park district, village or city, township, etc.)

Qualifications are:

  • 65 years old or older during the tax year
  • Own the property as your principal residence for the last two Jan. 1st (2014 and 2015)
  • 2014 total household income is $55,000 or less

Be prepared to bring copies of income received such as:

  • 2014 Federal Income Tax Form
  • Social Security Statement (SSA-1099)

If the property is owned in Trust, you may need to provide proof of the beneficiary.

If you should have any questions, please feel free to call the Moraine Township Assessor's office at 847-432-2100. To learn more about the assessment process, consult the Assessor's webpage at
