State law requires anyone planning an outdoor project that requires digging, regarless of the depth or the size of the outdoor project should call JULIE.
JULIE - 1-800-892-0123
JULIE's tips for outdoor digging projects include:
The home imporvement projects listed below would increase the value of your home; therefore your taxes would increase. However, the State of Illinois gives you a 4 year tax exemption for home improvements, plus taxes are billed a year in arear. So you will not see an increase in your tax bill until 6 years AFTER you complete your project.
Please call our tax assessor's office for a tax exemption form: 815-468-3996.
